EPS-QEOD Travel Grant Student Awards (application now closed)
EPS-­QEOD  Travel  Grant  Student  Awards  will be  attributed  on  behalf  of  the  European  Physical  Society   through its Quantum Electronics and Optics Division (QEOD) and Young Minds Action Committee. The   awards   consist   of   travel   grants   and   they   are   given   to   PhD   Students   who   wish   to   attend a QEOD-sponsored conference and whose scientific contribution in optics and photonics is of the highest quality. The goal of this award is to help talented young scientists to contribute to QEOD-sponsored European conferences in optics by taking in charge part of their expenses to the conference. The 2017 CLEO/Europe-EQEC Conference is elligible for these awards.

EPS Individual Member Travel Grant
The European Physical Society makes a limited number of travel grants available to EPS Individual Members to attend Europhysics and Sponsored Conferences. CLEO/Europe-EQEC 2017 is elligible for this grant scheme. More information and application form can be downloaded from here.

Student helpers (quota reached - no additional requests can be received)

2) Help at the registration desks/poster sessions (distribution of the badges, documents and conference bags or arrange the display of the posters and its physical control). Two days work would be thanked in exchange of a free registration plus dinner if wished or the monetary sum of 190 euros. Possibly the student
