Child care at the conference

Child care at the conference

Event
Some delegates have asked about child care options in the conference. We’ve done our best to include child care and the best we can offer is space just for children in the foyer of the CCIB. It is a big space, that can be closed creating a safe space for children, but we cannot offer any furniture, toy or game; neither specialized personnel. Parents could self-organize (ideally with other parents interested) to take care of the children. We are very sorry but for legal and infrastructural limitations the venue cannot offer a full service on this matter. In case you’d be interested in this space, please let us know.  We have also found some options near the venue (20 minutes walking, less than that if you go on public transport).  Brinkadeira: Babysitting services…

Meetup to sell and buy tickets for the STS verbena

Meetup to sell and buy tickets for the STS verbena

Event
The registration for the STS verbena closed a few days ago. Unfortunately, we can’t sell more tickets at the reception desk because the food is already ordered and it is impossible to prepare more at such a short notice. For this reason, we propose that those who may want to sell or give their tickets away meet with those who aim to get tickets at the entrance hall on Thursday and Friday from 17:30 to 18:00 (the last coffee break of the day). There will be a sign indicating the meeting point.

EASST grants to support participation

Uncategorized
EASST operates a scheme to support students and those at early career stage attend our conferences.  This takes the form of free registration (and does not cover travel or accommodation / subsistence).  Funding is limited and will be concentrated on those coming from countries which are normally under-represented at EASST conferences (particularly those from Southern or Eastern Europe). It will also be targeted at students or others without institutional support for conference attendance. Applicants need to be EASST members and to have had a paper accepted for the conference.  Those who receive awards are required to send a short report (500-1000 words) about the track or a plenary session attended to the editor of the EASST Review for consideration for publication. Applications should be made using the application form which…

4S grants to support participation

Uncategorized
4S administers a travel fund to support graduate student participation in its annual meetings. In addition to the base funding, a special fund was created from proceeds from the 2010 meeting. This Tokyo Fund supports Asian, African, and Latin American graduate students who wish to present a paper at 4S meetings. Applications for 2016 will be invited following the issuance of acceptance notices for the program (April 17th). The anticipated deadline for applications is May 1st. Awards are available for travel expenses only, not for food or lodging. The amount of each award will be determined once all applications have been received. In previous years, awards were in the range of $150-400, depending upon the distance to be traveled. However, the limited funds available do not allow us to award travel grants…
