In principle, it is expected that authors of contributions, which have been scheduled for presentation, will secure their participation in the conference on their own without any financial assistance provided by the organization; it is therefore expected that the "Abstract Submission or Update/Correction & Withdrawal" forms are used in general!
However, a limited amount of the overall budget of the conference is reserved to assist, first of all, the younger and more recently established scientists to attend the assembly; moreover, conveners may want to support the one or the other solicited speaker of their session (see below):
- Each support award is given for a particular contribution. Should this contribution be withdrawn before the meeting or should this contribution not be presented at the meeting although the author who has been awarded is present at the meeting, the award has to be returned, i.e. the author in question will be asked to register and, if necessary, to pay back the money received.
- Awards cannot be transferred!
Currently, the European Geosciences Union runs three different financial support schemes:
Young Scientist's Travel Award for Europeans (YSTA)
Free registration and a financial support to the travel expenditures of max. 300,- EUR + 40,- EUR abstract service charge.
Adrian Gill Travel Award (AGTA)
Free registration and a financial support towards travel expenditure of max. 300,- EUR + 40,- EUR abstract service charge for a young scientist from Britain to take part in a session of the Atmospheric Science or Ocean Science programme
Keith Runcorn Travel Award for Non-Europeans (KRTA)
Free registration and a financial support to the travel expenditures of max. 500,- USD + 50 USD abstract service charge.
Scientists, who wish to apply to one of the above awards, must be the principal author of their contribution, and they must submit an abstract by the deadline date and click the respective award they wish to apply for in their submittal information of their abstract. Only max. one application per contributions is allowed!
For the submission of your abstract/application for financial support, please use the link Call-for-Papers Programme under "Programme", select the part of the programme you would like to submit an abstract to, and study the respective session/event list and the aims and scope of the session(s)/event(s) of interest carefully beforehand. Then use the link "Support Application" amongst the "Public Links" of your session/event in question.
Conveners may apply directly for financial support on behalf of a specific speaker of their session by using the button "Support Ranking" below the title of their session in the programme. Thereby, they may also select "Waiver of Conference Fee" or even ask for a specific amount of money to assist the participation of a particular speaker. The deadline is the "Deadline for Ranking by Conveners"!
Abstracts of applications for financial support are very critically reviewed by the respective conveners and then, together with the applications made directly by the conveners, by the Support Selection Committee in view of their excellence and importance for the meeting. Although the budget for the support programme is quite reasonable, not every session will get an award or will be supported otherwise! Members of the Support Selection Committee should click here, login, find the "Support Selection Overview" and proceed as indicated.
Abstract Service Charges
For the entire handling of an abstract from submission to final publication on the abstract CD-ROM or in the programme book a service charge of 40,- Euro per abstract will be levied at the time of submission. Any later changes with regard of that abstract are then free of charge.
Abstract service charges can be paid online by Credit Card, by Voucher, by Invoice or by Cash on-site.
Please, notice that the abstract service charge is included in the support award, i.e., successful applicants will be reimbursed with regard to the abstract service charge.
