Hi everyone,

We received an email from the organizers of the 4th Workshop on Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences (WSSSPE4). They offer financial aid to attend their event: this is for US-based students, early-career researchers, and members of underrepresented groups only. This event will take place in Manchester (UK), in September.

If you have any question, contact them directly ;)

Travel Support Available for 4th Workshop on Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences (WSSSPE4, http://wssspe.researchcomputing.org.uk/wssspe4/)

Location: University of Manchester, Manchester, UK
Dates: 2 ½ days from Sept. 12th noon – Sept. 14th 5 pm, 2016
Immediately preceding and co-located in Manchester with First Conference of Research Software Engineers (RSE Conference) (Sept 15-16 at Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester, UK)

We anticipate funds to support participation in WSSSPE4, and some of these funds are being reserved for encouraging participation by US-based students, early-career researchers, and members of underrepresented groups.  Priority will be given to those who:

• have responded to the WSSSPE4 call for participation
• have made previous contributions to WSSSPE associated activities
• can make a compelling case for how their participation will strengthen the overall workshop and/or positively impact their future research or educational activities

While the initial deadline for travel support was July 10th, we are now encouraging submissions from US-based students, early-career researchers, and members of underrepresented groups, though we would like to receive such submissions by the Friday, July 29th.

Instructions for applying:

Please email a PDF document of no more than 2 pages to <[hidden email]> with “WSSSPE” in the subject line that includes

• Your name, place of study/work, and position
• Your potential contribution to the workshop, including your authorship of a submitted paper or talk, or intent to contribute in person to the workshop program on the WSSSPE4 page based on your knowledge and experience.
• The potential of your attendance to contribute towards your own research, educational and professional goals. If you are a student please describe the degree you are pursuing.
• The location from which you will be traveling to the meeting: Outside Europe, Europe outside the UK, or UK

Initial decisions on travel funds will be announced about August 2.  Decisions will be made by the WSSSPE4 Organizing Committee based on the ability of the applicants to meet the specified goals. If funds remain, applications submitted after the deadline will be also considered.

Support:

Due to an expected NSF award, WSSSPE4 can support the travel of US-based researchers. For US-based researchers traveling from outside Europe (e.g., the US), actual expenses up to a maximum of $1500 (including travel, hotel accommodation, and registration) will be covered. For US-based researchers traveling from Europe outside the UK, actual expenses up to a maximum of $1000 (including travel, hotel accommodation, and registration) will be covered.  And for US-based researchers traveling from within the UK, actual expenses up to a maximum of $500 (including travel, hotel accommodation, and registration) will be covered.

Detailed instructions will be provided to those awarded funds.
