Support

Request for financial support

The Mathematical Optimization Society aims to help people from various countries to attend ISMP. Limited financial support is available for PhD and post-doctoral students as well as people coming from underdeveloped countries.

At this point, we are unfortunately unable to provide funds for travel or local expenses, but can only waive the registration fee. If you obtain a free registration but have already paid the fee, it will be refunded to you.

To apply for support, send a maximum 1-page description of your situation (including a very brief curriculum vitae and indicating if you have a paper accepted for presentation at ISMP) to

fmargot@andrew.cmu.edu

For PhD students, a separate email directly from their PhD thesis advisor stating his/her interest in seeing the student attend the meeting and the lack of financial support s/he can provide. This email should be sent to the above address too.

For postdoctoral students, a separate email directly from their post-doctoral advisor stating his/her interest in seeing the student attend the meeting and the lack of financial support s/he can provide. This email should be sent to the above address too.

Applications should be sent before May 8th, 2015. Decision on the application will be sent by May 22nd, 2015.
