Welcome to Statphys 23

   
 

Student Support

A request has been submitted to The National Science Foundation that we anticipate will result in the availability of partial travel support to enable participation by graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior scientists affiliated with U.S. universities in the forthcoming International Conference on Statistical Physics, STATPHYS-23 (9-13 July 07 in Genoa, Italy).  Eligibility includes all students enrolled in USA institutions, regardless of nationality or visa status.  Individuals from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Interested graduate students and postdoctoral fellows should request their advisors to send by e-mail a nomination letter to Prof. David P. Landau (dlandau@hal.physast.uga.edu).  This letter should include the topic of the expected contribution.  It should also have attached a CV and list of publications of the student or postdoctoral fellow.  The estimated total cost of conference participation and the available contribution from the home institution should be included.  Unfunded junior faculty members should write directly to David Landau.  The selection process will begin on 16 April, 2007 in order to provide sufficient time to plan.  Applicants who cannot attend without travel support will be allowed to register late in the case that they do receive sufficient NSF support, but they should notify David Landau by April 7, 2007.
