In order to encourage student and postdoc members to attend our annual meeting and present papers, the Society offers each year a number of small travel grants to contribute to the travel expenses of student and postdoc members attending the meeting.
The Society provides the Local Organizing Committee of the annual meeting with the travel funds. Student and postdoc members who want to apply for a travel grant need to communicate with the Chair of the LOC. The call for application is normally included in the preliminary announcement of the annual meeting which is distributed to members about two to three months before the meeting.
Student travel grants were first offered in 1998, while postdoc grants were first offered in 2011. The amount given to each student and postdoc depends on the distance between his/her home institution and the meeting.
