Cost

During the conference, we will stay for the two first days in Kathmandu and move from there to the epicentral area of the 2015 Gorkha earthquake in the Bhotekoshi River valley, where the conference will continue at Borderlands rafting camp. The conference will include 1.5 days of field visits. The full week, including food and lodging as well as transportation will cost €525 (€445 for early career scientists).

Pre-registration

Due to venue size, the conference will be limited to 80 participants, so we will organize the conference registration in a two-step procedure. First, we kindly ask you to send us by email (gc6@gfz-potsdam.de) your short answers to a couple of questions. Successful applicants will be able to register in May. We expect that participants will attend the full conference programme.

Pre-registration is open until 30 April 2019. Please complete the form (docx download) and send it to gc6@gfz-potsdam.de.

Travel support

Thanks to support from the EGU and the US National Science Foundation (NSF), we can offer a limited number of travel and registration grants to eligible participants.

EGU support is available for early career scientists (ECS), as defined by the EGU. ECS grants will be given to cover registration costs for the conference.

NSF travel support is available to participants based at institutions in the USA, and can be used for support of travel costs (i.e. can be used to offset flight costs, but cannot be applied towards the registration fee).

To be considered for either of these grants, we ask that you to send an email to gc6@gfz-potsdam.de before 30 April 2019. The application document must include the following:

  1. Your affiliation, current position, and contact info.
  2. Whether you are an early career scientist (please note how you fit the definition, so if you are not currently a student, give the date when you received your highest degree. If your highest degree was more than 7 years ago, also give your total parental leave time).
  3. The abstract for your potential presentation.
  4. An explanation of how you would benefit from the conference (on the order of 300 words).
