Funding for Individuals' Travel to Meetings - Clarification
by Ramit Mehr
The guidelines for SMB funding to meetings or to individuals' travel to
meetings, published in the January Newsletter, have not indicated whom the
applications should be directed to. Hence I would like to clarify that:
- Students and postdocs applying for a Landahl or Busenberg travel award to
SMB or SMB-sponsored meetings, should send their application to
- Everyone applying for travel funding to other meetings in their area of
research, should send their application to the chair of the new committee for
individuals' funding, Lisa
- If the meeting has been sponsored by the SMB World Outreach Committee,
contact committee members to inquire about individual funding.
- Requests for sponsoring of whole meetings should be directed to the
president of SMB.
In all cases, please supply all the relevant information about yourself and
the meeting you would like to travel to. Students and Post-Docs should
enclose their supervisor's recommendation; students should enclose a
proof of student status.
