Dear Gravitational Researcher,
We at the University of Oregon have applied for an NSF grant to fund travel to MG IX in Rome, Italy, this July 2-8. While the grant has not been
approved, there is a reasonable chance that it will be. People who wish to apply for these funds should fill out the application form below, and send
it (before 15 March) to
Dept of Math
University of Oregon
Eugene, Or 97403
Note the following:
1) A US scientist is one who generally works in the US. Nationality is not relevant.
2) The funds can only be used to cover transportation to and from Rome. Housing and registration costs must be met otherwise.
3) US carriers, if available, must be used. (You are advised to consider making airline reservations as soon as possible to secure a good fare)
4) The selection of the people to receive travel support will be made by a panel of experienced US scientists (both theorists and experimentalists), based on the
information on the returned application forms. Preference will be given to those with NSF grants and those with no federal research support.
Please disseminate this information to your colleagues.
