The Deep-Sea Biology Society (http://dsbsoc.org/) is pleased to announce
that we will providing a small number of travel awards to those wishing to
attend the 6th International Symposium on Deep-Sea Corals (
http://deepseacoral.org/) that will take place in Boston, Massachusetts,
from September 11-16, 2016.
Awards will be decided based on the quality of the abstract and financial
need. Travel award applicants are required to submit an abstract to the
symposium. The abstract submission deadline is June 10.
Applications must be submitted through this form
http://goo.gl/forms/gb0RkxjfT4 before June 15. Applicants will be notified
about their application outcomes via email by mid-July. Successful
applicants will be expected to write a short blog post for the DSBS website
about their experience in the IDSCS.
In addition to the travel awards, the society will be sponsoring awards for
the best oral and poster presentations by early career scientists at the
IDSCS. Early Career is defined as anyone who has graduated from a PhD
program and is pre-tenure, or is in an equivalent research or governmental
position. (Please indicate your interest to be considered our registration
site when registering for the symposium).
