Registration & Bursaries

Student SFI Bursaries

Thanks to funding from Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and the Embassy of France in Ireland, we will be awarding a number of student bursaries to support student participation in iFM, FMICS and PhD-iFM. The bursaries will be awarded on a competitive basis. SFI funded bursaries may cover student registration fees and a contribution towards travel costs.

The eligibility criteria are that applicants must be a full-time or part-time student (confirmed by a letter from their supervisor). Priority will be given to those who have a presentation accepted at the conference events. Applications for the bursary are currently being accepted via the Google form at this link. The closing date for applications is 5PM GMT on Tuesday 24th July 2018. Final decisions on award recipients will be communicated by July 26th.

Student French Embassy Bursaries

Thanks to funding from the Embassy of France in Ireland, we will be awarding a student bursary to support student participation in iFM. This bursary will be awarded on a competitive basis. It will cover registration fees for iFM for a student studying for a PhD in France or a French National studying for a PhD abroad.

Early Stage Researcher Bursaries

Thanks to funding from Springer, we will be awarding two bursaries to support the participation of early stage researchers (ESRs) in iFM. These bursaries will be awarded on a competitive basis. Bursaries will cover registration fees for iFM for an ESR. For this purpose, ESRs are defined as those who are either studying for a PhD or who had their PhD for less than 8 years.

Priority will be given to applicants who are presenting their own research at iFM 2018, applicants who can provide feedback to students at the PhD Symposium at iFM on Sept 4th; applicants who are co-authors of an iFM 2018 paper presented by more senior co-authors; and applicants who are from Eastern Europe, or from low and middle income countries (as per EU regulations). Within fairness, we will apply gender balance considerations.

Conference anti-harassment policy.

The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to the values and goals of FMICS and iFM. Hence, we are committed to providing a harassment-free conference experience, and all the events held at FMICS and iFM must implement the ​ACM policy against harassment​.

Participants violating these standards may be sanctioned or expelled from the meeting, at the discretion of the conference organizers. If you believe that you or any attendee has been subjected to any conduct of the type prohibited by this Policy by another attendee, you are urged to report the relevant facts to the local organising chair or the PC chair for the relevant event, depending on which individual you feel more comfortable contacting under the circumstances.
