Nominate an ASI Visiting Speaker
There are 2 rounds per year, after which nominations for proposed Visiting Speakers are reviewed:
Round 1: Closes March 30 2020
Round 2: Closes September 28th 2020
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.
Nominations should be emailed to the Visiting Speaker Program (VSP) Coordinator, A/Prof Stuart Mannering.
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.
Please keep gender in mind when nominating speakers. Supporting women through the ASI VSP enhances the ability of both female and male immunologists to achieve their potential. Here are some great international databases full of magnificent female immunologists to invite: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Immunologie, European Federation of Immunological Societies and the American Association of Immunologists.
We particularly encourage nominations from our smaller ASI branches and also from Students and Early Career Stage ASI Members.
