[UNIF = International Workshop on Unification.  --BCP]

                      CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

            UNIF 2001 Junior Researcher Travel Award

To encourage the participation of junior researchers to UNIF and
thanks to the support of the National Science Foundation, the UNIF
2001 organizing committee offers a number of travel awards.

The award is intended to cover much of the expenses for up to four
university students or post-docs working in the field of unification
to attend UNIF 2001, which will be held in Siena, Italy, June 18-19,
2001. Each winner will be reimbursed (to a maximum of US $1,000) for
his or her workshop registration, transportation, and accommodation

The committee will favorably consider applicants who will be playing
an active role at the workshop by giving a talk. (All talks require
the submission of an extended abstract. Check the UNIF 20001 web site
at http://goedel.cs.uiowa.edu/unif2001/ for submission instructions
and deadlines).  Preference will be given to applicants from a United
States institution, but applications from deserving young researchers
in other countries will be considered as well.

Applicants should send a brief letter of motivation to the organizing
committee explaining their interest in attending the event. The letter
should include the applicant's work address, background and research
interests, and a list of his/her work on unification and related
fields. Younger applicants with no relevant publications yet should
supplement their application with a recommendation letter of up to 300
words, to be sent separately by their supervisor, commenting on their
research potential.

Application and recommendation letters should be sent by e-mail to
unif2001@cs.uiowa.edu . To receive full consideration they must arrive
no later than April 15, 2001. The winners will be notified by April
30. In case a winner does not attend, the committee may transfer
his/her award to another nominee or give no award.
