The International Association for Statistical Computing (IASC) welcomes applications of young researchers for scholarships to support their participation in the DSSV 2021 Conference.

IASC received donations for its IASC Young Researcher Fund and its IASC Support Fund from donors in 2020. A total amount of 320 Euro was received (295 Euro for the Young Researcher Fund and 25 Euro for the Support Fund). We would like to thank all of our donors again.

The IASC Executive Committee (EC) decided to use all of the donations for the goals outlined in the IASC Young Researcher Fund: “The IASC Young Researcher Travel Fund provides partial travel support to young IASC members from developing countries aged 35 or younger to attend an IASC-sponsored event (such as a conference, workshop, school, or other). Preference will be given to young researchers from these countries who are in financial need and actively participate at the event as a speaker, poster presenter, or in another active role.

With all major physical IASC conferences cancelled or postponed in 2021, the IASC EC decided to support presenters at the virtual DSSV 2021 conference who are in need of financial support and meet the following conditions:

  • Must be a young researcher / student, aged 35 or younger.

  • Must be an IASC member at the time of the application; new members are welcome to apply via the ISI website or the IASC website.

  • Must be from a developing country as defined here.

  • Must be a presenter of a "short interactive talk" at DSSV 2021 in the DSSV track category.

If you are in financial need to present at DSSV 2021 and meet all of the conditions above, please apply here. It is currently planned to cover half of the early bird registration fees of 30 Euro (for IASC members from developing countries and students) for approved applicants, i.e., 15 Euro.

The deadline for applications is May 23, 2021 via the website. Decisions will be announced by June 1, 2021. Note that decision on abstract submission to DSSV 2021 will be announced by May 30, 2021.

Approved applicants can register at a “Approved IASC Sponsored Participant” rate of 15 Euro. Approved applicants need to complete early bird registration by June 5, 2021, i.e., within 5 days after receiving e-mail notice.

In case of any questions, please contact IASC Membership Officer Ying Chen via e-mail (matcheny@nus.edu.sg).

Good luck with your application. We look forward to seeing you at the DSSV, giving your short interactive talk.
