To register, fill in an application for funding (type of support: “Ph.D. student seminar”).
Please note that you can stay on in Stockholm for NordSec and CySeP, too.
The seminar will take place at KTH on Sunday and Monday. NordSec will start at the same place on Monday after lunch. It is up to you where you book your accommodation. NordSec has some recommended places on the conference homepage.
COINS students get coverage for travel (least expensive practical alternative t/r Stockholm) and accommodation (COINS, NordSec, CySeP). Students without a regular paper, i.e. none or a poster, get coverage for the NordSec conference fee; authors of full papers should get funding for the conference fee from their department. CySeP participation is covered.
NordSec/CySeP: You need to wear your COINS t-shirt and/or hoodie and upload a picture of you wearing it at the conference. You need to submit a 2 page travel report on your participation that can be shared with other COINS students and can be published on the COINS website after the event. If you present a poster at either NordSec or CySeP, you send us a picture of you presenting the poster with a COINS logo instead of a travel report.
COINS supervisors get coverage for travel (least expensive practical alternative t/r Stockholm) and accommodation. COINS does not pay for supervisor attendance or participation at NordSec, but you are welcome to book your flight so that you can attend NordSec with your own funding.
SWITS and MyPhD students and Ph.D. students from COINS partners get coverage for travel (least expensive practical alternative t/r Stockholm) and accommodation. COINS does not pay for attendance or participation at NordSec, but you are welcome to book your flight so that you can attend NordSec with alternative funding.
COINS does pay additionally for accommodation and NordSec (or CySeP) attendance for students that attend both the COINS seminar and NordSec (or CySeP), present a poster, wear a COINS t-shirt throughout the NordSec conference, acknowledge COINS funding on their poster and document their contribution by two photos of them taken at the conference and by writing a one page report on their seminar participation that can be published.
All inquiries can be sent to email@example.com.
Participating COINS Ph.D. can obtain ECTS credits that might be used towards the taught component of their Ph.D. programme.
Students need to enrol in “IMT6004 COINS Workshop” at HiG to be formally allowed to get ECTS credits according to the requirements in the course description.
Please indicate in your application for funding or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in enrolling in IMT6004. Students get a transcript from HiG documenting their participation and then need to present it to their local COINS member institution. All consortium members agreed that participation in IMT6004 would be recognised as being eligible for consideration towards the taught component of the Ph.D. programmes.
