The organisers are pleased to announce that there will be a limited amount of funding available to support the conference costs of registered students who are presenting papers or posters at ECIR 2011.
The expected value of the student travel bursary this year will be €300. In order to apply for this support, a letter in PDF format containing the following information should be emailed to Nicola Stokes (use "ECIR 2011 Student Support" in the subject heading of the email):
Students who receive a bursary will be expected to assist staff at the conference with tasks such as organizing conference material, handling attendee registration, supporting sessions to ensure they run smoothly, checking badges, helping people get where they need to be, running errands, and the like. These tasks will typically consume part of the day, allowing the student to spend the majority of the time attending the conference.
The deadline for applications is the 14th of February 2011. Successful candidates will be notified on the 21st February 2011, and will receive their approved costs upon arrival at the conference in April.
