Extended Stay Support Scheme

We propose to the STACS 2024 attendees an Extended Stay Support Scheme (ESSS) aiming at enhancing scientific collaborations and diminishing the carbon footprint of scientific research activities. STACS 2024 attendees are encouraged to combine their visit to Clermont-Ferrand by collaborations with local researchers.

This support scheme is primarily intended for participants travelling long distances and must be combined with an attendance to STACS. Upon acceptance, research institutes involved in this mechanism may (partially) cover standard expenses (accommodation, living expenses and traveling fees, plane excluded) and will provide material support for research activities.

  • How to apply to the STACS 2024 Extended Stay Support Scheme?
  • Application to the STACS 2024 Extended Stay Support Scheme is made by two persons, a visitor and a (future) local collaborator and should be sent to the contact person in the hosting research institute. The application should include:
  • – The name of the visitor (the STACS attendant) mentioning her or his affiliation, city and country of origin.
  • – The name of the (future) local collaborator.
  • – The dates of the visits.
  • – Few lines describing the subject of the collaboration.

  • Specific constraints:
  • – For applying, the visitor should attend STACS 2024.
  • – Dates of the visit do not have to be directly adjacent to the conference dates, as long as the applicant avoids traveling by plane in between.
  • – If too many applications are received, further criteria of selection may have to be applied, such as favoring long distance participants or applying a « first come first served » policy.

The overall coordinator is Florent Foucaud (florent[DOT]foucaud[AT]uca[DOT]fr). Please contact him for general inquiries or if you wish to include your research group/lab in the list of hosts.
