Finances and Applications

International School of Cosmic Ray Astrophysics <<Maurice M. Shapiro>>

21st Course: Astroparticle Physics: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
1-7 August, 2018


Financial Matters and Logistics:

The local expense fee of 700 Euros, payable in advance or upon arrival, covers lodging, meals,
transportation between the Palermo airport and Erice (provided by the Centre) and all course
activities. Participants dine at their choice of a number of Erice restaurants. (Beverages,
including water, with meals are not included and must be paid for separately.)

Participants needing financial assistance should apply as soon as possible. Partial assistance
with local expenses will be offered mainly (but not exclusively) to (a) students from overseas,
i.e., those requiring trans-Atlantic or trans-Pacific travel, (b) students from former East-bloc
countries, and (c) students who demonstrate real financial need. Requests for financial
assistance should accompany the application. There are no travel funds (e.g. airfare) available.

Qualified applicants who can defray all of their own expenses are usually admitted.


Application / Registration:

Applications from graduate students and post-docs should include a brief CV and a statement
that travel funds are available. For students, a short note of endorsement by a senior scientist
should be perovided. There are no registration costs. Anyone interested in attending should
apply as soon as possible since space is limited due to constraints at the Ettore Majorana
Centre, and late applicants may have to be turned away.

Senior Participants are encouraged to attend and should contact one of the directors.

Applications should be submitted to the website which is an
Indicio page established for this course. You will need to be prepared to upload your
CV/resume, and note of endorsement as PDF files. Response will be via e-mail, with the first
selection of attendees in early 2018. For questions not covered on the websites, please contact
one of the directors.
