I wanted to let you all know that I have support to aid travel to PAFFA through the All Cypriniformes Species Inventory project funded by the US National Science Foundation. I am sorry for the late notice, but my university was having troubles figuring out how to do this. Support will likely be no more than $1000 (depending on the number of applicants). Priority will be given to anyone presenting a paper on Cypriniform systematics, anyone that is willing to publish a paper on Cypriniform taxonomy in a similar volume to the one we produced for Asia to be arranged within the next 6 months (http://www.mapress.com/zootaxa/list/2012/3586.html), anyone with demonstrable experience with cypriniforms. and those that do not have alternative sources of funding.
The support will come in the form of a stipend to be issued after the conference. Please send an application by Tuesday, 10 September. If you know of someone not on this list, please forward this e-mail. What I will need from you is:
Monetary Need (for example, how much funding you have and how much the meeting will cost):
Title and abstract of either talk or proposed paper, or a list of accomplishments in cypriniform systematics:
Thank you and I am looking forward to a very interesting meeting!
