Apply for travel fellowship

We are pleased to inform you that travel fellowships are available for a selection of students or young researchers presenting and attending LASCS 2016. These travel fellowshipS are possible due to the kind support of our sponsors.

All participants of LASCS 2016, submitting an abstract (see the Abstract Guidelines), are invited to apply for a travel fellowship. The deadline for submitting an travel application is on 23 SEPTEMBER 2016 at 11.59pm in the time zone of your choice. Recipients of a LASCS travel fellowship will be notified on 5 October 2016.


Successful applicants will be awarded a travel fellowship to cover parts of their expenses. The award check will be posted to each awardee after the symposium. In order to ensure the correct processing of the award, travel fellowship recipients are required to provide the organisers with copies of relevant receipts (conference registration, travel expenses, hotel) during or shortly after the symposium.

Please note, the LASCS travel fellowship will only cover parts of your expenses. The remaining expenses need to be funded by other sources.
Applying for a travel fellowship does not guarantee that you will receive funding. If you require a travel fellowship to attend the symposium, do not register before you have been notified that you application has been approved.

  1. You will make an oral or poster presentation at LASCS
  2. You are not a recipient of an ISCB or A2B2C travel fellowship
  3. You are associated with a university or a research institute as a PhD student or Post-doctoral researcher
