The  deadline for the submission of abstracts  for the Scientific Instrument Symposium in Rio on 8-14 October 2012 has been extended to July 1st.

Other good news is that the Commission has been able to secure some funding for students and junior scholars to attend the meeting.  The scholarships will cover the meeting registration, banquet, and some travel expenses.  The total amount will depend on need and the number of awards.  Details on how to apply will be posted after the Transit of Venus.
