2004/05, and there is no guarantee at this stage that funding will be

If any colleagues in Germany are interested in organizing a social 
simulation seminar/workshop in 2006, please contact me directly.

Funding will be provided for joint seminars and workshops, in areas 
where the exchange of information promises to improve the level of 
co-operation between scientists of the two countries.  The joint 
seminars and workshops can be held in either country.

The co-organisers are responsible for the scientific programme, the 
organisation and the financial management of the joint seminars and 
workshops.  It is expected that costs between $20,000 and $60,000 
(GSTinclusive) will be sought for the proposed joint seminars and 
workshops.  Successful applicants will be required to provide a written 
report on the joint seminars and workshops detailing significant 
immediate and expected long-term outcomes from the activity.

Deadline Monday 10 January 2005.
