Support for less favoured participants

In order to help colleagues from less favoured countries and regions to participate in the ICMP, the organizers offer with the help of congress sponsors a possibility to apply for congress fellowships which may include:

* waiving of the conference fee
* free accommodation in a budget hotel
* a small contribution towards travel expenses

The number of fellowships is limited and they will be given on a competitive basis; those interested in the support are requested to send an application to not later than March 15, 2012.

The Application must include

* A cover letter explaining the applicant's interest in the congress and other possible funding sources.
* Curriculum Vitae, including a list of publications.
* Brief (one page) description of the applicants research (may be part of the cover letter).
* A letter of recommendation from a senior scientist.

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. Applicants should also request the senior scientist to submit the letter in support of their application by e-mail to the above address.

After the deadline, the application will be evaluated taking the academic achievements, age, and economic aspects into account.

The results will be announced at the end of April; a (non-negotiable) offer will be made to successful candidates.
