    The Convener needs decide and make the selection online. Once selected, the registration fee of the AOGS Comps recipient will automatically be set to zero.

    Secretariat Office should inform the selected individual as early as possible.

    The recipient must be an author-presenter and the benefit is not transferable.

  2. Reduced Registration Fee
  3. AOGS has a reduced fee scheme which is applicable to both standard and student rate. AOGS will set aside funding support for up to 10% of eligible participants to receive reduced fee status.

    Eligibility for the reduced fee scheme is restricted to scientists working in less wealthy countries, as defined by the World Bank list of low income and lower middle income countries. Information about the classification procedure is provided at: There are 91 countries defined as low or lower-middle income, including 34 countries in the Asia Oceania region. These are listed below by alphabetical order by category.

    If there are more applicants for the reduced fee scheme than funding available, selection criteria will be applied. The selection process will be overseen by the Financial Support Committee which is chaired by the AOGS Treasurer. The criteria used for the selection process include assessment of the quality of the science, the value of the contribution to the conference session and the relative career stage of the applicant, with preference towards junior scientists.

  4. Local Advisory Committee (LAC) Student Registration Waiver Scheme for Australasian & Oceanian Students
  5. Background and Eligibility

    1. The LAC Student Registration Waiver Scheme will be implemented by the LAC in consultation with AOGS.

    2. At least 10 full student registration waivers and 30 student helper registration waivers will be available. Student helper registration will be required to work for AOGS for half the conference.

    3. Only Honours Year or Postgraduate students at Australasian (including Australia and New Zealand) and Oceanian universities can apply.

    4. Only students who are first authors on an abstract submitted to AOGS 2013 can apply - only students with abstracts accepted for presentation will be awarded these registration waivers.

    5. 10 Registration waivers (3 full and 7 student-helper) will be reserved initially for students from non-Australian institutions. Addtional registration waivers will be available for full-time student helpers.

    6. Application Process & Criteria

    7. Students apply for the scheme by sending an email that provides the required information to before the end of 22 February 2013. Applications must:

      1. state the full name of the applicant, the degree enrolled in, the year of the degree, the name and location of the applicant's university, and the name of the university department;
      2. state the Abstract number(s), title(s) and Session(s) of their submitted abstract(s);
      3. provide
        • your publication list (authors, title, journal, volume, pages, both refereed journal and conference papers, published, in press, and submitted),
        • a brief statement of the importance of the results to the session and field,
        • a brief statement of financial need, and
        • how definitely you will attend if you obtain a waiver under the LAC Student Registration Waiver scheme;
      4. state whether the application is for only a full student registration waiver, a student helper registration waiver, or a full-time student helper waiver;
      5. state which sessions they would particularly like to help with.
    8. Selection Process

    9. Registration waivers will be allocated to Sections in proportion (rounded appropriately) to the number of abstracts accepted by AOGS for each Section.

    10. LAC will rank student applications for each Section on the above application and eligibility criteria and forward names to AOGS. The LAC will check with AOGS whether abstracts have been accepted.
      Typically applications from later-stage students with important results, large financial need, and better publication records, and who will definitely attend if they receive a waiver will be ranked higher.

    11. AOGS will inform students as to whether they've received a registration waiver and of which sort.
      Please proceed to rapidly complete and submit your applications.
