SLAS Support for Conference and Event Organisation
SLAS makes available funds amounting to £3,000 annually to support conferences and other events which are likely to be of high quality, to advance the objects of the Society, and to appeal to a considerable number of its members.
The maximum allocation is £1,000 per conference or event. All conferences and events supported must be open to all members of the Society (subject to payment of conference fees). The contribution of the Society to any conference or event must be clearly and publicly acknowledged. The criteria for the award are:
- Originality and potential contribution of the proposed conference / event
- Intellectual rationale
- Feasibility and coherence of the programme
There are two annual deadlines for this scheme: 28 September and 28 February. SLAS will not consider applications for conferences held within one month of the deadline for submission of applications.
Please note that successful applicants must pay the costs associated with their conference or event in advance, and will be reimbursed by SLAS up to the amount of the award upon production of conference or event accounts.
Applications arriving after the deadline will not be considered under any circumstances.
For any queries, please e-mail: Adrian.Pearce@kcl.ac.uk.
