The SFBD is offering five 400 euros travel grants to encourage young scientists (PhD students/young post-docs) to attend the annual SFBD / SEBD / SPBD meeting (Porto, Nov. 7-10, 2018) (Application deadline : 31 July 2018)

The application (one pdf file) must be sent to sfbd chez sfbd.fr and must include :
- the application form (download here),
- a short CV along with the list of publications and previous participations to other meetings,
