The Sensometric Society invites applications for
Travel Grants & Scholarships
for participation in the 14th Sensometrics meeting in Montevideo, Uruguay in April 2018.
Application deadline: January 8, 2018
The Sensometric Society intends to provide travel grants and/or scholarships for attendance at the 14th Sensometrics Meeting, to be held April 9-12, 2018 in Montevideo, Uruguay.
Prerequisite for application is the submission of
- an abstract to the conference (deadline: December 15, 2018), and
- an awards application (deadline: January 8, 2018).
The decision about the awards will be based on both expressed need and merit. Merit will be evaluated based on quality of the abstract, its acceptance as oral or poster, and further documentation as specified in the application template.
The travel grant intends to allow a person to travel to the conference who would otherwise not be able to attend the conference. Preference will be given to applications requiring long-distance travel. The travel grant will include reimbursement of travel and expenses up to a specified amount. Applications for the travel grant must be supported by a reasonable (and substantiated) estimate of expected travel expenses for travel and stay.
Meeting scholarships intend to cover the costs incurred with attending the conference. Scholarships include registration to the conference.
Decisions about awards for the 14th Sensometric Meeting will be made by the Executive Committee based on recommendations from the Awards Committee composed of selected members of the society. Award recipients will be notified by January 22, 2018, and must promptly confirm their intention to receive the award. All award winners will receive a complimentary ticket to the Conference Dinner, where the award certificates will be presented.
