Important Statement Regarding Financial Support
NSF funding permits the support of conference-associated travel and lodging costs for a limited number of participants. To stimulate research activity among these groups, graduate students, young researchers, members from underrepresented minorities, and HBCU/MI faculty are especially encouraged to apply. Participants must be US citizens or permanent residents to qualify for support. If you would like to apply for financial support, please sent your CV to javelezmarulanda at valdosta dot edu. If you are a graduate student, please arrange for a letter of recommendation from your advisor, stating how you will benefit from this conference, to be sent along with your CV.
Important Statement Regarding Participants outside of the United States
Unfortunately for reasons beyond the organizers’ control, any person that resides outside of the United States and who wants to participate in our conference, is expected to already have a US VISA or a passport that allows her/him to travel to Valdosta. We cannot provide letters of invitation with intent to apply for a US VISA.
Statement Regarding the Conference Expedition
The expedition will be at the Okefenokee Swamp Park and Adventures (see https://okeswamp.org/ ). Transportation may be available, but only on a first-come-first-served basis. We have two VSU vans with limited seating. On the other hand, if you are planning to drive to the Okefenokee Swamp using your own car, please let us know if you are willing to share a ride with other participants of the conference. We are expected to participate in the three (3) hour swamp experience: Boat-Train-Nature Show. Please look at the FAQ website of the Okefenokee Swamp Park (https://okeswamp.org/frequently-asked-questions/) in order to obtain further information.
