YSC2013 funding support

Young Vic­to­rian sta­tis­ti­cians should be attend­ing the YSC con­fer­ence in Mel­bourne in Feb­ru­ary 2013. It promises to be a great event, and the speaker line-​​up looks first-​​class (apart from one dodgy keynote speaker).

If you think you can’t afford it, there is good news! The local SSA Branch is offer­ing finan­cial sup­port to selected young sta­tis­ti­cians. Appli­cants must be stu­dent mem­bers of the Vic­to­rian Branch (to join, see www​.stat​soc​.org​.au/​j​o​i​n.htm). Suc­cess­ful appli­cants will be given free con­fer­ence reg­is­tra­tion. In addi­tion, suc­cess­ful appli­cants from regional (non-​​Melbourne met­ro­pol­i­tan) Vic­to­ria will be given fund­ing to assist with accom­mo­da­tion, up to $200 based on actual costs.

Appli­ca­tions should be sent to the Sec­re­tary, Sandy Clarke: sjclarke@​unimelb.​edu.​au by 25th Novem­ber. These should include

  • a brief CV;
  • a con­fer­ence abstract;
  • a short jus­ti­fi­ca­tion (about 150 words) for receiv­ing sup­port, includ­ing what (if any) other finan­cial sup­port the appli­cant will be receiving.
