There are 2 rounds per year, after which nominations for proposed Visiting Speakers are reviewed:
Round 1: March 5 - 30, 2018
Round 2: September 3 - 28, 2018
How to Nominate a Visiting Speaker
Any current ASI member may nominate an ASI-funded Visiting Speaker by downloading the Nomination Form below and providing the following details:
(i) The contribution of the proposed speaker to the field
(ii) The value of the proposed speaker to the ASI membership
(iii) A short list of the nominee’s recent major publications.
Up to 4 speakers will be selected for a tour from the nominated individuals. The speaker must visit at least 3 branches, or 2 branches if SA/NT, WA or NZ is visited, and must take up the offer within 1 year of approval. You can support your application by including names of laboratories from other branches who would be keen to host your speaker, however this is not essential. Please make sure that you have contacted the nominee and that they are willing to participate.
We particularly encourage nominations from our smaller ASI branches and also from Students and Early Career Stage ASI Members.
