TRAVEL GRANTS FOR U.S. PARTICIPANTS

First Conference of the International Society for NonParametric Statistics (ISNPS)

Chalkidiki, Greece, June 15-19, 2012.  

 

Pending final approval, funding may become available from the U.S. National Science Foundation to partially support the travel costs of selected U.S.-based researchers participating in the First Conference of the International Society for NonParametric Statistics (ISNPS),

Chalkidiki, Greece, June 15-19, 2012.

 

Details of the meeting can be found at the conference webpage: www.isnpstat.org

 

All applicants must be affiliated with a U.S. institution, and reside in the U.S. We especially encourage the applications of junior researchers, i.e., those who received their PhDs in 2006 or later, or who are advanced graduate students working on PhD dissertations. Following standard NSF restrictions concerning travel, recipients of travel grant funds for airfare must travel on U.S. carriers when possible, e.g. the part of the trip over the Atlantic. All grant recipients must provide receipts for expenses to be reimbursed, whether for airfare, lodging or subsistence.

 

Applications must be received by March 31, 2012, to ensure full consideration. Note that the funds are limited and, in the best case, will cover only a (small) part of incurred travel expenses depending on the number of funded applicants.

 

Each application must include items 1-6 below in the form of one single pdf file emailed to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with Subject line: [ISNPS—NSF Travel Grant]
