Young Researchers’ Travel Support

in support of attendance at IUTAM 2016


Applications for travel support can be submitted through the Paper Submission process. If you do not have all the documents required at the time that you submit your Paper, you can save submission and return to edit at a later date. Please note that all applications for travel support must be received by January 15, 2016.

To encourage graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and early career researchers who were born in 1981 or later to participate in this Congress, the organizers have established a travel support program in which a limited amount of partial travel support will be made available to qualified candidates to attend the Congress. Travel support offered will be up to a maximum of $1,000.00 CAD. Registration fees will not be waived.


Please note that applicants are fully responsible for getting to the Congress themselves, and all successful applicants will receive payment upon personal presentation at the Congress in Montreal.
