Student travel grants

Student travel grants Revenues from Insectes Sociaux have now been transferred by Springer. The financial subcommittee of the International Union (Koos Boomsma, Mike Breed, Heike Feldhaar) decided to allocate 30.000 $ of this money to the sections in good standing with an emphasis on student travel grants for conferences of which our section will receive 5.000 $ to be spend this year. To be eligible for a travel grants, students have to be members of the Central European Section. Only PhD-students or students (Master / Bachelor) can apply. Students should have an accepted contribution at the respective conference (poster or talk) and need to be presenting author. Thus each student needs to have her/his own contribution to be eligible for funding; it will not be possible that two travel grants are awarded for the same presentation. Funding is limited to a maximum of 50% of the total travel costs (including conference fees). The application itself consists of a letter of motivation by the student, a short CV (including publication list), a list of the travel costs and the abstract for the contribution. The application should be send to Heike Feldhaar ( as a single pdf-file. The decision will be taken within three weeks by a committee consisting of Jan Oettler, Susanne Foitzik, Balint Marko, Volker Witte and Heike Feldhaar. For the upcoming European IUSSI meeting in Italy, the deadline for application will be 1 month before the end of early registration. Capitation fee The capitation fees will stay the same as last year. However as in the last general assembly of our section it was decided to change to collect the fees on a biannual basis starting from 2012 onwards, the amount has doubled but the fees will cover 2012 and 2013: Please transfer your capitiation fee for 2012 to the following bank account (latest deadline 1 st of March 2012: � Members from ‘Western’ European Countries, US 50,- € � Members from ‘Eastern’ European Countries 10,- € � Students, Unemployed 10,- € For bank details please contact Heike Feldhaar.
