(DLMPS/IUHPS)

Conference Support -- Call for Applications
 =================================================

 The Executive Committee of the IUHPS(DLMPS) invites applications from 
members to support conferences that will take place during 2014.  The 
maximum amount that IUHPS(DLMPS) can supply to support a conference is 
00(US).  A brief letter of application should be sent to the 
Secretary/Treasurer, Peter Schroeder-Heister 
, describing the subject of the conference, 
the names of speakers, an estimate of the number of people attending, and 
an indication of how much money is requested and what that money will be 
used for.  The Executive Committee prefers to support conferences that

 1. will have a multi-national group of participants.
 2. will include the participation of younger scholars.
 3. will include the participation of individuals from outside of Europe
 and North America.
 4. will use video-conferencing technology in addition to having
 participants travel to the conference site.

 These preferences are not requirements; they are desiderata.  The
 deadline for receipt of requests is November 15, 2013.

 In order to be eligible, an application needs to be supported by one of
 the member organizations of DLMPS/IUHPS. Conferences whose main
 organizer is a member of the executive committee of the DLMPS/IUHPS are
 not eligible for funding.
