IGAC has a new process for early career scientists to apply to the 2020 IGAC Early Career Short Course and a new policy on travel grants for early career scientists to attend IGAC2020. Please refer to the 2020 IGAC Early Career Short Course website for further information. This new process means early career scientists will NOT be able to apply for the Early Career Short Course or Travel Grants to the conference through the abstract submission process.
