Travel Grants for Young Researchers -- Deadline expired


The Bioinformatics Italian Society provides young researchers with travel grants for attending its annual general meeting.

Eligibility. Young researchers (up to 35 years old) that are BITS members or are requesting to become members, without a permanent position and submitting an abstract to the conference as first or last author may apply. Priority will be given to young researchers not receiving a BITS travel fellowship in previous years.

Evaluation. Travel Grants will be awarded according to the scores assigned by the Scientific Committee to the submitted abstracts. Only the best scoring attendee per each research group may be rewarded with a travel grant. Young researchers requesting to become members may only receive the grant if the BITS Steering Committee has provisionally given its approval to their candidature.

Grants. Each travel grant will amount to 300.00, which will be credited to the bank account of selected candidates after the conference and provided that they effectively participated in the meeting.

Deadlines. Applications should be received together with the submitted abstract (both for Posters and Communications). Submission of candidature to become BITS members should be done within the same deadline (for young researchers who aren't members yet).

Registration. Student fees apply, according to registration date.
