The purpose of the Travel Awards is to enable Early Career Researchers (ECR) to attend an international conference of significance to their research. At this conference Applicants are expected to be presenting their current research as a platform presentation, a panelist, an invited speaker, or in a poster presentation.
The research material to be presented at the conference should not be based primarily on the Applicant’s PhD studies.

For this round of Travel Awards, the conference commencement date published on the official conference website must fall within the specified timeframe of 1 November 2016 to 31 May 2017.
