ICPS 2019 – Last registration opportunity for waiting list

The ICPS 2019 Organising Committee has opened registrations one final time to allow for a participation possibility for those who are still interested but were unable to sign up between the first and second rounds.

As all the places for ICPS Cologne are already filled, this final round is based on a waiting list, ordered according to date and time of registration, as it is expected that some already accepted participants might have to renounce their place for various possible reasons, a phenomenon observed every year.

So, if you haven’t signed up and want to attend the biggest IAPS event, this is your opportunity to register!

ICPS 2019 Grants and Scholarships available

The ICPS 2019 Organising Committee (OC) has announced two opportunities for financial support in ICPS 2019 attendance.

The Dr. Karl Mey Scholarships, established by the DPG to promote young scientist from Central and Eastern Europe, are supporting with up to 600€ for conference fee and travels costs up to six ICPS participants from Central and Eastern European countries presenting a scientific contribution at ICPS.

ICPS Worldwide Grant – Call for applications

ICPS 2019 registrations are open and, with them, so is a big opportunity for students that may want or need IAPS support in attending ICPS in Cologne: the ICPS Worldwide Grant!

By preparing a student lecture to be presented during the conference, applicants to the Worldwide Grant will have a chance to have the conference fee plus a considerable fraction of travel costs covered by IAPS!

This grant serves the purpose of rewarding students with a good academic record, history of participation in a Physics society and adequate lecturing skills, with priority given to those with financial hardship.

To apply to go to ICPS 2019 through this opportunity, you must prepare and send to grants@iaps.info a preliminary abstract of your student lecture, a letter of motivation, your CV and remaining documents specified in the Worldwide Grant webpage.

Applications are open until February 28th, so start preparing yours now if you plan on sending one!
