Conference Support

SAIMS is keen to support the dissemination of advanced interdisciplinary research through conferences organised by its student and staff members. The budget is limited, but the Steering Group will consider applications for:

(a) organisational assistance (including advertising on our website)
(b) booking of rooms and use of St John’s House as a venue
(c) financial assistance, budget permitting

Level of award: No awards will be for more than £1000.

Closing dates: Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, subject to budget constraints.
Applications must include:

(a) an outline of the academic purpose and content of the conference
(b) a list of speakers
(c) a detailed budget

Please note:

  • Only conferences where the thrust of the discussion is interdisciplinary will be considered for funding.
  • All applicants must ensure that at least three disciplines are represented on the organisational committee.
  • Please contact the Director before finalising the format or dates of a conference to be associated with the Institute.
  • Applicants are also encouraged to apply for external funding wherever possible.
