ICMP 2003

NSF Support for travel by US researchers

Deadline for application: Sunday, April 6, 2003

A block travel grant proposal has been submitted to the National Science Foundation for the XIV International Congress on Mathematical Physics to be held at the University of Lisbon, Portugal, July 28 - August 2, 2003. This grant will provide support for travel to the Congress and possibly associated satellite meetings by US based researchers. Priority will be given to recent PhDs and advanced graduate students who do not have travel support from other sources. Women and members of under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Application procedure


Applications must be received by Saturday, February 15. We hope to notify researchers who will receive funds by early March, so late applications cannot be considered.

The Application must include

Submission of applications

The grant will be administered by Bruno Nachtergaele and the staff of the Mathematics Department of the University of California, Davis.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications by email to icmp-travel@math.ucdavis.edu.

The preferred format for applications is a single PDF file, which should be sent as an attachment to an e-mail message to the address given above. Student and postdoctoral applicants should also request the senior scientist writing on their behalf to submit the letter by e-mail to the same address.

Applicants who cannot submit their application by email may mail it to:

Bruno Nachtergaele, ICMP travel

Selection criteria

Selection committee

Applications will be reviewed a Selection Committee consisting of the following members:

Amount of award

We anticipate being able to fund travel for approximately twenty researchers. Awards will specify a maximum support amount which should be sufficient to cover the cheapest airfare to Lisbon (US carrier), modest room and board there, and the registration fee. Participants whose expenses for the main conference (including the Young Researchers Symposium) are less than the maximium amount will be allowed to submit expenses for a satellite meeting up to an amount that does not exceed the overall ceiling. Applications for funding the satellite meetings only will not be considered.


Questions about this travel support can be sent to Bruno Nachtergaele at bxn@math.ucdavis.edu .
