Travel Suppport

Some travel support is available for participants, with priority going to graduate students, postdocs, and junior researchers without other sources of support.

To apply for travel support, please email the organizer at the address below. In your message, include your name, current institutional affiliation and status (grad student, postdoc, junior or senior faculty), Ph.D. year and institution if not a graduate student, indicate what other support, if any, you have available, and attach a CV. In the case of graduate students and postdocs, please have your supervisor email a brief letter of support to the same address.

In order to allow us to offer support in time for participants to make travel reservations, the target date for applications is May 9. Applications received after that date will only be considered if sufficient funds remain.
