A limited number of conference fee waivers are available with preference being given to research students, early career scholars with limited research support, and those from countries with accepted funding difficulties. Participants will need to meet all their own travel, visa (if any), accommodation and subsistence costs.
Applications should be sent by e-mail to the conference organiser. You should state:
- the reasons for your application (e.g. cost implications of travelling to the conference; student/early career status, or other circumstances);
- whether you have made attempts to find other sources of funding for travel and subsistence (please advise us if the outcomes of any such attempts are still pending at the time of your application);
- name of your institution, department, and where you will be travelling from;
The application must be accompanied by an abstract of up to 300 words. We regret that we cannot consider bursaries for non-presenting attendees.
Applications must be in writing and be submitted to Professor Julian Webb via your institutional email by no later than 31st July 2018.
Failure to attend: The waiver scheme will prove popular and as places are limited some people will be disappointed. To ensure attendance at the event, we require a credit/debit card to secure the free place. If you attend, the credit card will not be charged. If you fail to attend without providing notice in writing at least 30 days prior to the event, we reserve the right to charge your card for the full conference fee. If you require a visa to enter Australia, you are strongly advised to apply early, to avoid the risk of any visa refusal triggering our late cancellation policy.
Agreement: If you are successful in your application we will ask you to complete a bursary acceptance form agreeing to the terms and conditions of the bursary and the charge to a credit card if you fail to attend. Upon receipt of this signed agreement, we will confirm your bursary place.
