-- STUDENT SUPPORT --
---------------------------------------------------------------------

   A limited number of travel grants is available for students who
   would not otherwise have resources to attend RTA 2012, and whose
   attendance would benefit both the applicant and the conference.

   The number of grants and the per-grant amount will be established on
   a case by case basis, depending on the applicant's need and the
   total amount of funds available for the program. Applicants should
   note that a grant is limited, and that costs in excess of the grant
   will not be reimbursed.

   Grants will be awarded based on the grant committee's assessment of
   the applicant's genuine financial need, the potential benefit to the
   applicant's education, research, and career, and the potential
   benefit to the conference. Among those applicants who genuinely
   could not attend the conference without a grant, the evaluating
   committee gives priority to (co-)authors of accepted papers.

   Applicants should download and fill the application form and send it
   by ** April 16 ** by email to

          rta2012-grant@trs.cm.is.nagoya-u.ac.jp

   Applicants should have their supervisor send a recommendation email
   to the same address and by the same deadline. This letter should
   describe the student's work, the benefit to that work of attending
   the conference, and an assessment of the student's financial need.

   Funds will be provided after the conference, upon submission of
   receipts.

   * Schedule

     - Monday April 16: Deadline for applications and recommendation
       letters

     - Friday April 20: Notification about acceptance or rejection

-- HOST CITY: NAGOYA, JAPAN  --
---------------------------------------------------------------------

   Nagoya is located at the center of Honshu (the main island of
   Japan) with a population of 2.24 million. Thanks to the rich water
   resources of the Kisogawa, Nagaragawa and Ibigawa Rivers, the
   fertile land which enjoy the blessings of the rivers, and other
   advantages including good transportation links, its people have
   lived affluent lives since early days.

   Nagoya has a long history and is the birthplace of three notable
   feudal lords, Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu.
   Also in Nagoya, traditional industries like ceramics and textiles,
   and today's key industries like automobiles, aviation and machine
   tools have developed, and Nagoya has an important role in Japan's
   industrial society.

   Furthermore, the Central Japan International Airport (Centrair)
   opened in February 2005, and in March 2005, Expo 2005 Aichi Japan
   started. Centrair has flight connections with Frankfurt, Helsinki,
   Detroit, Tokyo Narita, etc. Today, Nagoya grabs attention and
   keeps on developing as a Japanese international city.
