The II International Young Scientists Forum on Applied Physics and Engineering YSF-2016 has grown on ideas of Kharkiv Young Scientist Conference YSC which was held annually at O. Ya. Usikov Institute for Radiophysics and Electronics NASU for 14 years starting from 2000. Those years were filled with overall number of participants exceeding a value of 1000 and more than 120 incredible speakers from all over the world including USA, Canada, UK, France, Italy, Germany etc. There have been 7 career development workshops that in 2014 were transformed into the KIT workshop, a mixture of science and technology. During those 14 years there were lots of chats and new connections. For us, as for organizers, all of this was pretty amazing experience.
2015 became the year when "pretty amazing" was not enough. We felt like growing and uniting with other active young scientists from Ukraine. 2015 was the year when we started a new stage: we organized the International Young Scientists Forum on Applied Physics YSF-2015 for the first time. Comparing to YSC, the scientific scope of YSF-2015 was extremely widened. We changed the venue to O. Honchar Dnipropetrovsk National University and united with young scientists conference "Problems of Theoretical Physics" of Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics. It was the year when we mixed and freshened things up. We had many fantastic talks by leading scientists, incentive workshops about grand opportunities, popularization of science, MOOCs, the first ukrainian nanosatellite, 3d-printing, and many more. Add to that the excursions, communication with peers and the farewell party on the boat, and you will see what a wonderful event we had!
This year the Young Scientists Forum is coming back to Kharkiv, and we are raising the bar! For the YSF-2016 we plan new exciting scientific lectures and social events. We will rock, so stay tuned!
It's less than a month till the Forum, we are looking forward to meeting you all!
