EASE/KCSE Travel bursaries for EASE Conference in Split, June 2014
The recent storms in the UK meant that the EASE Secretariat was out of action for two weeks. This meant that we could not tell people about our exciting new bursaries. We have therefore extended the deadline.
There will be two bursaries, each comprising free registration and £200 towards travel and accommodation. The bursaries are open to any paid up EASE member (except those employed by commercial organisations), including sponsored members and people associated with the Regional Chapters. Applicants should send a short CV or biography and up to 200 words explaining why they would be a worthy recipient of the award to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10th April 2014. The successful applicants will be notified by 17th April.
Pippa Smart joins EASE Council
Pippa, who did such an excellent job as lead editor of the Science Editors' Handbook, has been formally co-opted by Council as a full member. We are delighted that Pippa has agreed to join Council and look forward to her continued contributions to EASE.

12th EASE General Assembly and Conference, Split, 13th – 15th June 2014
The complex world of science editing
The programme has been emailed to all members. Note that the parallel session topics listed near the bottom are for the main conference, Friday to Sunday, not for Monday.
We are delighted that Nobel Laureate Tim Hunt has agreed to be our Keynote speaker. Tim is an inspirational speaker whose enthusiasm for science shines through. He just wants to know "how things work!" We have invited him to reflect on the current state of science and how he thinks it may develop, including science publishing.
Mary Ellen Kerans has confirmed the title of her parallel session as Sustainable quality and usability in biomedical translation – issues and approaches to problem-solving.
An updated version of the bibliography on writing in English for non-native speakers of English, prepared by James Hartley at Keele University and Vera Sheridan at Dublin City University is now available (pdf).
Copies may be ordered through the EASE web shop for £24.99 plus postage.
The full Table of Contents is now available.
