The participation of early career scientists and those from developing nations is key to the success of the ICRC - CORDEX 2016 and therefore there will be a limited number of support grants available for participants attending the conference. They will be assigned based on the financial need and scientific merit of the proposed presentations described in the abstracts, the contribution to the conference, and provision of supporting documents (see below). Priority will be given to:

  • Early Career Scientists: post-graduates and researchers who received their highest degree in 2011 or later.
  • Scientists from developing countries.


How to qualify for financial support?

In order to qualify for financial support the applicant must:

  1. Submit an abstract of a paper to the conference, of which he/she is the principal author, through the 'Abstract submission' page of this website.
  2. Submit a complete financial support application; applicants must provide and submit the following information to by 17.00 CET on Monday 30th November:
  • Summary of CV (education, professional experience, selected publications)
  • Short motivation statement (e.g. expected benefits from attending the conference)
  • Pdf files containing the signed recommendation letter from the supervisor or director of the host laboratory, a full CV, and any evidence of partial support to cover travel and/or accommodation expenses.


Evaluation & notification

A Scientific Committee has been established to review all the applications and select the successful candidates based on the importance of their contributions to the workshop. Successful applicants will be informed of both their abstract acceptance and application for financial support on 15th January 2016.

The number of financial support awards is limited and therefore we recommend applicants to provide all useful information and supporting documentation to strengthen their case. Those who are assigned financial support must attend the entire conference in order to benefit; the support grant will cover the registration fees and reasonable travel and accommodation expenses. 


The participants who are granted financial support must attend the entire conference in order to benefit. For participants with financial support it is mandatory to register at the Registration desk every conference day.
