WWW-YES-2010

10th edition of the World Wide Workshop for Young Environmental Scientists (WWW-YES-2010)

31 May - 4 June 2010 at Arcueil, France

WWW-YES-2010

General programme

The WWW-YES-2010 workshop has taken place from Monday 31 May to Friday 4 June 2010, from 9:00 to 18:00, at Communauté d’Aglomération du Val de Bièvre CAVB. Except for Monday 31 May 2010, all scientific sessions and lunches have taken place, in an informal way, within the meeting hall ’Salle du Conseil) of this local institution. On Monday 31 May, all activities shall be held at Arcueil city hall (Hotel de Ville d’Arcueil) within the main meeting hall (Salle du Conseil). See detailed map and location addresses on the venue article).

WWW-YES workshop proceedings (draft PDF version): cover (0.2 Mb) and text (4 Mb): a printed version has been distributed to all participants at workshop opening.

Official opening of the workshop (Monday 31 May 2010 at Arcueil city hall)

Within a short morning session open to hosting institutions at Arcueil city hall, the CAVB, the Arcueil municipality and the Conseil General du Val de Marne (CG94), the 10th edition of the WWW-YES workshop will be officially opened and participants will briefly introduce themselves, their academic institution and their ongoing research activity.

Oral presentations (31 May to 3 June 2010)

Each participant has prepared and uploaded prior to 6 April 2010 a 6-10 page manuscript following the suggested format.

Each participant has prepared a 10 min scientific presentation, in English, on his / her research project and was ready for 30 min detailed scientific discussion during the workshop, also exclusively in English, chaired by the workshop participant in charge of reviewing his/her manuscript.

The oral presentation (ca. 10 slides) especially focussed on:

  • The scientific context of the research subject,
  • The research questions that are expected to be answered during the PhD preparation, together with their environmental justification,
  • The field and/or lab and/or model methodologies that are currently or will be used, together with their justification for addressing the questions presented before,
  • One or two major results obtained so far,
  • The planned research activity till the end of the PhD (or after its termination, in the case of a PhD which is already finished),
  • The significance and limitations of these methodologies for developing countries.

Workshop participants were reminded of the large diversity of background knowledge within their colleagues, i.e. from natural to human sciences: thus these oral presentations were expected to be extremely clear and well illustrated, allowing non-specialists of the research field to understand the raised environmental questions and the applied methods.

Each participant had received a manuscript to review, using a referee report form: this review was expected to be filled and sent back prior to 26 April 2010 to Daniel Thevenot, who then sent these reports to the author of the manuscript. Thus WWW-YES-2010 participants were ready, after their oral presentation, to answer to comments and questions raised by his/her referee.

As since 2006, all participants of this 2010 edition were offered to publish their paper in this Open Source specific collection : 11 manuscripts and 12 presentation files are published (see links within the scientific programme below)

A printed version of the proceedings draft version was given to each participant upon arrival. In addition, PDF versions of this document and its cover are available on the web (4.2 and 0.2 Mb respectively).

Field visit (Tuesday 1st June 2010 afternoon)

A half-day technical visit on urban water issues was organised at several sites of Bièvre valley, upstream to Arcueil. Herve Cardinal at the SIAVB (Verrieres-le-Buisson) explained the river management upstream the highly urbanised part of the river where it becomes a domestic underground sewer. A visit of one of the hydraulic regulation lakes followed. Finally, participants discovered parts of the Bièvre River where it has been re-opened, in the middle of a newly designed park (Parc des Pres). This visit was accompanied by Daniel Thevenot and martin Seidl to ensure the transfer of knowledge and the discussion with the representatives of the local water authority.
