The DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, German Research Foundation) has provided us with (rather limited) funding to support participation in the conference. This is restricted to travel and hotel costs, and applies only to participants from countries included in the OECD-DAC List plus Russia (following the rules set by the German Academic Exchange Service, DAAD). Applicants need to have a PhD and have to give a presentation during the conference.
Participants who cannot find other funding sources for their travel should contact the conference office by June 30, 2015 (caryophyllales[at]bgbm.org) with the subject line Travel Funding to inquire about possible support.
The OECD-DAC List can be accessed here.
