The conference will bring together senior and junior scholars of the field. Away from the hectic bustle of large-scale conferences it will offer unique opportunities for detailed discussions and networking. The academic programme will be completed by a social programme including a welcome reception allowing us ample time to catch up with old friends and to meet new members as well as a reception at the Basel Town Hall and a conference dinner on the second evening of the conference.
Travel grants available for PhD students

In order to receive the grant, PhD students will need to submit a confirmation from their PhD supervisor that their home institution will not cover their travel and accommodation costs at the value of the grant. A simple statement along the lines of “I hereby confirm that the PhD student’s travel costs are not covered by the amount of CHF 250 which will provided through the travel grant from the conference organisers of the SGoP Basel 2017” will suffice.
After the conference, grant recipients will need to submit an overview of their travel budget including copies of receipts for travel and accommodation. Upon receipt of this, their travel grants will be paid out.
Applications for the travel grant should be submitted no later than 15 April 2017 to email@example.com
