The Bioinformatics Italian Society provides young

Young researchers (up to 35 years old) that are 
BITS members or are requesting to become members, 
without a permanent position and submitting an 
abstract to the conference as first or last 
author may apply.  Priority will be given to 
young researchers not receiving a BITS travel fellowship in previous years.

Travel Grants will be awarded according to the 
scores assigned by the Scientific Committee to 
the submitted abstracts.  Only the best scoring 
attendee per each research group may be rewarded 
with a travel grant.  Young researchers 
requesting to become members may only receive the 
grant if the BITS Steering Committee has 
provisionally given its approval to their candidature.

Each travel grant will amount to € 300.00, which 
will be credited to the bank account of selected 
candidates after the conference and provided that 
they effectively participated in the meeting.

Applications should be sent by email to 
segretario from bioinformatics.it within the same deadline for the abstracts.
Applications should include the following data: 
Name, Surname, Birth date, Role (Student / Phd 
Student / Researcher / Other), Affiliation, Title 
of the abstract, Author(s) of the abstract, BITS 
Memberships status (Member / Pending request),
