    The Sensometric Society invites applications for
    Travel bursaries
    Student scholarships
    for participation in the 11th Sensometrics meeting 2012.


    The Sensometric Society intends to grant at least one travel bursary and at least three student scholarships for attendance at the 11th Sensometrics meeting, to be held July 10-13 2012 in Rennes, France.

    Prerequisite for application to any of these is the submission of an abstract to the conference. Only accepted abstracts will be finally considered (though application needs to be received before notification). The decision about the grants will be made depending on the quality of the abstract, its acceptance as oral or poster, and potential further documentation. Notification about grants will be in mid May; recipients of grants are supposed to register by May 18 for the conference to benefit from the early bird fees.

     

    Travel Bursaries

    The travel bursary intends to allow a person to travel to the conference who would otherwise not be able to attend the conference. The bursary will include registration to the conference including the Conference Dinner, plus up to EUR 1200 to support travel expenses. Preference will be given to applications requiring long distance travel. Applications for the travel bursary should be supported by a reasonable (and substantiated) estimate of expected travel expenses for travel and stay.

    Student scholarships

    Student scholarships intend to help students to cover the costs incurred with attending the conference. Scholarships include registration to the conference including the Conference Dinner, plus EUR 50 for minor expenses. Applications need to be accompanied by a proof of studentship of the home university.

     

    Decision about grants will be made by an independent committee, consisting of Tom Carr, Chris Findlay and Michael Meyners, in collaboration with the executive committee of the Sensometric Society. Please send applications accompanied by the abstract as (additionally) submitted to the conference no later than April 10, 2012, to the chair of the Sensometric Society.

     

    On behalf of the Sensometric Society,

    Michael Meyners (chair)
