IPICS2016 organisers will award a limited number of support packages of up to $A2000 for early career researchers to attend the conference. Applications close at 23:59  UT September 15, 2015, and must be made at the same time as you submit your abstract using the IPICS2015 Abstracts Submission Form.

Additional nationally-tied support for early career researchers is also available. Applicants from eligible countries should apply as first preference for these via relevant national channels, in addition to the application here, in the event that they are unsuccessful.

  • Europe: EPICA member institutions can submit applications for support to the Descartes Prize Committee via their national representative.
  • United States: At the time of opening, the prospect of ICYS-solicited support for US early career researchers is under consideration. Contact ICYS US reps for latest information.
  • Developing nations: Travel support is available for early career researchers from developing nations, with generous support from PAGES.  Applications for travel support must be made simultaneously with the submission of your abstract on the IPICS2016 Abstracts Submission form.

IPICS2016, EPICA, PAGES and ICYS will coordinate the travel support applications with the intention to grant only one award to any individual. Applicants should be aware that the IPICS2016 awards here will be finalised after consultation with all other funding providers.


  • Most, but not all, support awards offered here by the Hobart organising committee are intended for attendance at the Ice Core Young Scientists (ICYS) Workshop on Sunday 6 March in Hobart.
  • Any individual is entitled to only ONE award from IPICS2016, EPICA, PAGES or any other nationally coordinated program of awards. Applicants are welcome to apply here as well, but should be aware that organisers and funding providers will coordinate awards in consultation to ensure just one is granted.
  • Awards will be negotiated on the basis of airfare and accommodation receipts to the maximum value of A$2000.
