As was done in 1999 and 2001, Defeating Deafness (a UK charity) has agreed to provide some support for a small number of Ph.D. students to attend the 2003 Conference on Implantable Auditory Prostheses: (Asilomar, California; 17-22 August, A total of #2000 is available, which will be split among 2-4 candidates. Clearly, the amount available will not cover the total expenses, but should provide an important supplement to other funding. Those eligible to apply are Ph.D. students and recent post-doctoral students at UK institutions. Preference will be given to candidates involved in cochlear implant research or attached to a cochlear implant programme. Please send applications to me by email on or before 16 June. A decision will be made by 23 June. They should include a brief CV, a statement of research interests, a statement of the potential benefits of attending the conference, and a supporting letter from the supervisor or current "boss". It is a condition of the funding that a brief report be sent to Defeating Deafness after the conference. If you are considering applying, I would appreciate a short message right away so I can gauge the demand. Please forward this message to anyone you think might be interested. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Stuart Rosen, Ph.D. Professor of Speech and Hearing Science Dept. of Phonetics & Linguistics University College London 4 Stephenson Way London NW1 2HE England Tel.
