Abstract submissions for the ASI Annual Scientific Meeting have been extended until 6th September 2019, so we’d like to remind you of the fantastic ASI Meeting Awards, Subsidies and Travel Bursaries currently on offer.  

Applications for all Annual Meeting Awards also close 6th September 2019.

Why is it so great to be an ASI member?

  • Last year we DOUBLED our Travel Bursary total funding to AUD 40 000 this year, so your chances of success are:
    ~1 in 2 if you are a Postgraduate Student
    ~2 in 3 if you are a Postdoctorate Investigator
  • Following the success of last year, we will offer childcare facilities on site again this year. Costs are partially subsidised by ASI. We are committed to equity, diversity and inclusion, and encourage you to bring your families to explore Adelaide with you.
  • Last year we INCREASED the value of our Womens Initiative Travel Awards to AUD 1000 so be quick as there are a limited number on offer!

Don't delay! These are even greater reasons to submit your abstract.
