YSC2013 funding support

Hyndsight

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!┬áThe local SSA Branch is offering financial support to selected young statisticians. Applicants must be student members of the Victorian Branch (to join, see www.statsoc.org.au/join.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.
