Requesting travel support to the Meeting
There are limited funds from NSF to support travel to the meeting. As in previous years, individuals having current NEES/E-Defense projects and are expected to attend these meetings as part of their projects are not eligible for travel support. Selection of individuals to receive travel support will be based on achieving adequate technical expertise in each of the active working group areas, attracting new researchers and students to participate in US-Japan collaborative research, and insuring that NEES/E-Defense planning efforts benefit from a diverse and geographically distributed cross section of the earthquake engineering community, including women, disabled individuals and under-represented minorities. Please do not send these requests via email, as the JTCC will rely on the submissions through the website registration only.
