Student and Young Women Researcher Support

Thanks to support from AVAST and RSJ companies, we are able to offer several travel grants covering a waiver of the registration fee and in exceptional cases possibly also a limited travel support. The grants will be given in two categories:

  • young women researchers, including students and researchers within 6 years after PhD (excluding any maternity leave), supported by AVAST;
  • students (PhD or lower), supported by RSJ.

Applications for travel grants must be sent to icalp2018 --at-- by Saturday April 28, 2018. Applications must be in PDF format and include:

  • a short statement and explanation of your interest in attending the conference, including your travel funding situation and an approximate breakdown of the trip costs if you apply for a grant exceeding the registration fee;
  • a current CV that includes your contact information, the (expected) date of the award of your PhD, the institution awarding your PhD, and your advisor's name;
  • a short letter of support for your application written by your advisor, postdoc supervisor, workgroup leader or department chair on the official letterhead of your institution.

One application for both categories is sufficient, if applicable. Only a limited number of grants will be given, with preference to the conference speakers and applicants without proper travel funding.

If you apply for a travel grant, please register only after notification of the application result which will be announced by mail on May 15.
