The Congress Travel Grant Program (CTG)
This grant is offered only in the years of an ISB Congress. This year it will be offered to help reducing the travel expenses to attend the XXVI ISB Congress in Brisbane, 23 – 27 July 2017. The ISB Congress provides a wonderful opportunity for exchange of information and for meeting other scientists who can be influential in the development of new directions. By virtue of the need to move the congresses among different continents, it is often very difficult for students to afford to travel to the Congress or to pay the registration fee if they can travel. However, we will offer several travel grants (from $US600 up to $US1200, according to the distance from the Congress city) to those meant to present their research results at the 2017 ISB Congress in Brisbane. The student must be first author of the Abstract and presenter of the paper.
Note: Students from an institution in an EDC region will be considered for additional funding according to their submitted budget. A separate application for the EDC Congress Travel Grant Program will not be necessary. Please clearly indicate on your application that your main affiliation is with an EDC institution.
Application forms are available here and applications are to be received by December 20th 2016 with applicants being notified by February 1st 2017.
The United States had its first National Biomechanics Day on April 6 2016. Next year, NBD is becoming international, with groups from Australia and New Zealand following suit. Earlier this week, ISB members were invited (via email) to help grow this exciting event! For more information, see the NBD webpage:
