The second round of the 2019 Travel Awards will open on 12 August 2019.
2018 Travel Awards
Each year The CASS Foundation offered two rounds of Travel Awards to enable early career researchers to attend and participate in international conferences relevant to their current research. On return, they provide a report to the Foundation:
Stewart Heitmann from Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, attended the annual Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Conference on Applications of Applied Dynamical Systems, in Utah in the USA, May 2019.
"My attendance at the conference had two major beneﬁts. Firstly, it allowed me to promote my software to a targeted audience of international experts and to forge deeper relationships with the creators of other software packages that are complimentary to my own. This helps us all to build interoperable software for the beneﬁt of the wider community. Secondly, the conference introduced me to the international community of researchers in computational cardiology in which I am new. I came away from it with a much better feel for where I ﬁt into that community and how my current work relates to active problems in the ﬁeld. Australian researchers are often deprived of such nuances because of geographic distance, so I am particularly grateful to the CASS Foundation for giving me this opportunity."
In July 2018, Dr Yinghong Zhou from Queensland University of Technology, was assisted to attend the 96th General Session of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR), in London, UK.
"Discussions following my presentation have already developed into potentially multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional collaborations to achieve the long-standing clinical goal of periodontal tissue regeneration."
