Financial Support

The conference organizers encourage the participation of young scientists working on the topics covered by Hard Probes. All students and post-docs (up to 5 years after the Ph.D.) are eligible for the reduced registration fee.  

In addition, the conference organizers have secured funds to promote and facilitate the participation of students and post-docs by waiving the registration fees and in some cases covering the accommodations. Students and post-docs requiring financial support should send a brief CV, a brief description of their current research project and two letters of recommendation, one of which should be from their supervisor. They should also indicate if they plan to submit an abstract for oral or poster presentation. Priority will be given to the applicants who have also submitted an abstract. This material, including the letters of recommendation, should be sent to the conference secretary by e-mail to before March 4.

Students and post-docs that will pay a reduced fee or that will receive support are expected to follow the student lectures on Sunday, May 27.
