Welcome to RJP Grenoble!


A one day event for non-permanent physicists working in Grenoble for social and scientific exchange. It will be a great opportunity for you to gain a broad overview of the ongoing research  and to enter into a strong network of young physicists.

RJP 2023-24 THEME


RJP’s are focused on the presentation of projects of doctorants and post-doctorants through a series of talks and posters. The interest of this colloquium is to offer a dedicated space to share their work in a pedagogic manner to other young physicists of Grenoble.

Traditionally, this event is a moment of new meetings and passionate exchanges between physicists. These exchanges engage different subjects in physics permitting to envision the plurality of this field of research in Grenoble. The shared moments throughout this day allow us to discuss these passionate subjects permitting young physicists from different domains to interact and share their experiences.

This year, in addition to these presentations, we are proposing two talks focused on the theme of Photography. The latter represents a conjunction of art and science giving the urge to capture the beauty that surrounds us at different levels. In order to do so with mastery and intent, all the parameters that make up our images must be identified and calibrated, especially in a scientific context such as images coming from telescopes. Starting from how the data are taken to how they are treated and finally what image we obtain at the end of the treatment process.

Program of the day

RJP is a daylong event including 2 keynote speakers presentations. The first one, “Hiking for shooting: photography combined with the passion for the mountains” will be given by Mr Bruno Lavit, a professional photographer and engineer. He will be presenting his passion for photography combined with his passion for mountains. Mr Lavit will show us his photographs explaining the used techniques to take them with the respective materials and setup.

Then a second talk entitled "Images of planetary systems in formation: from Hubble Space Telescope to James Webb Telescope" will be given by Mrs Catherine Dougados from IPAG laboratory. She will be presenting a well-known use of photography in science, the James Webb telescope, through a comparison with older telescope images such as Hubble and Alma. This gives photography an exciting dimension to explore and understand with a large amount of outstanding data that are processed and analyzed by many scientists.

In addition to these two talks, the day will be rhymed by presentations and posters of our young physicists, fun activities such as quizz, cocktails, surprise events and prizes distribution. Below is the program of RJP 2022-2023.

RJP 2022-23 GOAL

Oral presentations
Research Institutions


The participation is free for both the speakers and the listeners. We strongly encourage you to submit an abstract for an oral or a poster presentation in order to benefit the most from the conference .

You can register for the conference by clicking here. Abstract of the oral presentation or poster can be uploaded in the registration form. A template for abstract is available below.

Please note that all participants will be contacted after the deadline of submitting abstract

(14th April)

Oral Presentation or a Poster

In its choice of speakers, the committee seeks to promote both the quality of research and the clarity of the subject, while trying to scan different areas of physics.

Each oral presentation will last a maximum of ten minutes, plus five minutes for the questions session. Special attention should be paid to pedagogy and the perspective of the subject in a more general context. The subject must remain accessible to an audience of physicists who are not specialists in the field. You can expect your audience to come from different backgrounds like Nanophysics, Cosmology, Biophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, Thermodynamics etc.

The oral or poster contributions should both introduce the field of study and describe the research work of the participant, with a reconciling view between a demanding scientific communication and a pedagogic presentation.

Presentations should be in English as the participants will be from different nationalities. Further, the presentation materials (slides, posters, etc.) must be in English and bear the logo of the Doctoral School on which the speaker depends.
