The 3rd YCN Workshop was held at the University of Aveiro, Portugal, from 19th to 21st April 2023. This event was organised by The University of Aveiro and YCN with the financial support of the JECS Trust

This Workshop was open for young researchers (PhD + max 10 years), PhD students and master students that were invited to present their work in 10 minutes for Oral presentations (+ 5 minutes of questions and answer) and in 5 minutes for Poster presentations.
