Dear IASPM members,
We would like to inform you of the outcome of the application process for travel grants to attend the XX IASPM Biennial Conference to be held in Canberra, 24-28th June 2019, which closed on 21st December 2018. We received 58 applications, which were then processed and ranked according to the criteria that we had announced.
At the General Meeting that took place in Kassel in June 2017 some rules for the planning of future biennial conferences were approved. Among them, the need to propose candidacies in advance of the next GM. Therefore, the Executive Committee announces a call for proposals to host the 2021 IASPM Biennial Conference.
