PARTICIPATION AND TRAVEL GRANTS
-------------------------------
To be considered for a grant, you need to submit an application, with file
name:

NLS2017-grant-application-Your-Names.pdf

via EasyChair on this link:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nls2017

On the bottom of the submission page of EasyChair, under Topics, you need
to check the box "Grant application", before uploading your application.

The application must contain the following documents, in one PDF document:

(1) Letter of Application for a grant, stating your logic-related interests
(2) academic records or transcripts of courses taken so far that
demonstrate your background in logic
(3) Letter of Recommendation from your current or most recent supervisor

----
Note 1: In case your recommender prefers to send the recommendation
directly, she/he should send it as an email attachment of a pdf file named:

Letter-of-Recommendation-Your-Names.pdf

to the following email address:

nls2017-grants at math.su.se

Email Subject: Letter-of-Recommendation-Your-Name.pdf

Note 2: "Your-Names" should be your actual first and family name, without
spaces.

Note 3: In case the originals are not in English, the best is to provide
