The Bioinformatics Italian Society provides young
researchers with travel grants for attending its annual general meeting.
Young researchers (up to 35 years old) that are
BITS members or are requesting to become members,
without a permanent position and submitting an
abstract to the conference as first or last
author may apply. Priority will be given to
young researchers not receiving a BITS travel fellowship in previous years.
Travel Grants will be awarded according to the
scores assigned by the Scientific Committee to
the submitted abstracts. Only the best scoring
attendee per each research group may be rewarded
with a travel grant. Young researchers
requesting to become members may only receive the
grant if the BITS Steering Committee has
provisionally given its approval to their candidature.
Each travel grant will amount to € 300.00, which
will be credited to the bank account of selected
candidates after the conference and provided that
they effectively participated in the meeting.
Applications should be sent by email to
[log in to unmask] within the same deadline for the abstracts.
Applications should include the following data:
Name, Surname, Birth date, Role (Student / Phd
Student / Researcher / Other), Affiliation, Title
of the abstract, Author(s) of the abstract, BITS
Memberships status (Member / Pending request),
Previous grants awarded (Yes / No)
Submission of candidature to become BITS members
should be done within the same deadline (for
young researchers who aren't members yet).
