created 06  Feb  2012

Funding is available from the U.S. National Science Foundation for a block travel grant to help in defraying the travel costs of junior researchers, women, and members of underrepresented minorities from the United States participating in the 8th World Congress on Probability and Statistics, July 9—14, in Istanbul, Turkey.

Details of the meeting can be found at the conference webpage:

Junior researchers are those who received their PhDs in 2006 or later, or who are advanced graduate students working on PhD dissertations. All applicants must be affiliated with a U.S. institution, reside in the U.S., and not have an individual NSF grant.

Applications received by March 15, 2012, will receive full consideration. Applications will be reviewed by a committee consisting of selected past and current U.S. members of the Committee for Conferences on Stochastic Processes. It is anticipated that applicants will be notified of the results of their applications on or before April 15, 2012.

Each application must include items 1-5 below in the form of one single pdf file:

1. A statement that the applicant meets the eligibility criteria given above.
