We are excited to announce the availability of a number of student grants for those attending, or wishing to attend, the conference. We have a total of 25 grants worth $120 each to cover the cost of conference registration. If you are a student and would like to be considered for one of these grants please email George Cunningham (Cunningham@utas.edu.au) with a copy of the title and abstract of your talk/poster as well as a brief (e.g., 1 – 2 page) CV in a single Pdf document.
Grant applications will close on Friday the 24th of November and awardees will be notified at the conference. In the event that we get more applications than we have money to fund we will prioritise students for which the funds will provide the greatest offset for their costs in getting to the conference. We realise that this is late notice and will not necessarily allow people to make decisions about attending based on successful funding but we still hope that this will help facilitate the attendance at the conference for a number of students.
