Postdoc Financial Support for Water Conference 2017

Dear  friends and colleagues, 

 

For the Twelfth Annual Conference on the Physics, Chemistry, and Biology of Water, we are announcing the availability of financial support for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who wish to attend. Please pass this letter onto any whom you think might be interested.

 

The meeting this year will be held in Sofia (Bulgaria), a land richly endowed with natural waters and splendid natural scenery. It will take place from October 26 – 29, 2017. Please visit www.waterconf.org.

 

Once again, we are encouraging young people to come, hear, and rub shoulders with the leaders in the field by offering to partially defray travel and lodging costs for selected students and postdocs who plan to present a poster at the conference.

 

To apply for financial support:

 

1. Supply a title and short abstract (one paragraph) of the poster you intend to present.  To be considered for support, poster presentations are required.

 

2. Have your research advisor write a brief note describing your capabilities and the need for financial support.

 

3. If you are more than 35 years old, please justify the need. This program is designed primarily for people 35 and younger.

 

4. Send both documents to ­­­mail@waterconf.com.  The deadline for submission is August 15. EARLY APPLICATIONS ARE ENCOURAGED, as the meeting may reach capacity. 

 

Applicants will be informed of decisions on or before August 30. In no case can full costs be covered. We have limited funds, so we must limit the selected students to ten.

 

Conferees from previous meetings have given rave reviews, stimulated by many novel observations and lively discussions in an intimate setting.

 

With best wishes,

Gerald Pollack

Conference Chair
