Call for early career speaker travel award

Early Career PAG 2018

Nominations are now being accepted for the IWGSC Early Career and speaker travel award for the primary IWGSC workshop that will be held at the Plant and Animal Genome Conference XXVI .

Deadline: Monday 25 September 2017.

The IWGSC main workshop is organized by Sébastien Praud and Kellye Eversole.

The recipient of the award will be expected to give a presentation on his or her work at the IWGSC workshop that will be held on Saturday 13 January 2018 from 8:00‐10:10 am. The work must be related to the development or utilization of wheat genomic resources. We are particularly interested in talks related to the use of the IWGSC RefSeq v1.0.

Anyone can submit a nomination or an individual may self‐nominate. Eligibility is restricted to graduate or post‐doctoral students, scientists who do not have a group, and scientists who have received their Ph.D. within the past 10 years. Priority is also given to individuals who have not spoken at an IWGSC workshop at PAG.

To nominate an individual or yourself, please send an abstract of the proposed talk and a c.v. to Kellye Eversole (eversole<at>eversoleassociates.com). Abstracts are limited to 250 words. The nominations must be received by 25 September 2017, 23:59 US Eastern Daylight Savings Time.

The individual selected to receive the IWGSC Early Career Award will receive a travel stipend of $1,000 (USD) to help defray the costs associated with participating in the workshop. Additional details on the IWGSC Early Career Award can be found here .
