Travel Grants

The Australasian Bayesian Network Modelling Society (ABNMS) is offering four travel grants to attend the ABNMS Tutorials and Conference 25-28 November 2013 in Hobart, Tasmania. Awards will be for $250 to $500 to cover travel to and from the conference.

Three Student Grants will be awarded and one 2012 Travel Grant for any person who attended the ABNMS pre-conference tutorials in 2012 in Wollongong, NSW & will present in 2013.

Applications should include a brief statement indicating the type of travel grant being applied for, justifying the application, an estimate of travel costs, a scanned signed statement from an academic supervisor verifying student status (if in application for one of the student travel grants), and a CV. An abstract of the paper to be presented at the conference must be submitted in parallel (see the Call for Abstracts). Student travel grants will only be awarded if the recipient registers for the conference and tutorials.
