I thought some of you might want to know about a new source of funding for scientists who plan on attending a Gordon Research Conference in 2006:

The Nature Publishing Group (NPG) supports the broadest possible participation of qualified scientists in scientific conferences. To forward this goal NPG has established the NPG Awards to help assuage one of the factors that prevents conferees from various countries with developing economies from attending the renowned Gordon Research Conferences.

Applicants from all nations/regions are eligible, except those nations/regions listed below. [click here to see the list of non-eligible countries]
