Applications for limited junior travel funding to attend the ISBA 2012 World Meeting are invited.


Talk or poster presenters who are:

-Ph.D. students expecting to graduate by Jun 2014
-Researchers who received their Ph.D. after July 2005 are eligible to apply.

Please note that some funding sources may impose more restrictive criteria, such as fewer years since having received the Ph.D. and/or a closer deadline for the expected graduation.


Support will be possible thanks to ISBA, ASA-SBSS, Google, Microsoft, NSF, Pascal 2 and the Japanese Ministry of Education, Science, Sports, Culture and Technology. We are also anticipating additional support from other US and Japanese funding agencies. We expect awards ranging from 200 US$ to 1000 US$, depending on location (based on the relative cost of travel to Japan).

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: February 28, 2012==> closed

Decisions will be made in several stages, and expect to be completed in Spring 2012.
