Courier E-mailing List


There is a free online service for the dissemination of information on all ICTP activities, programmes and related announcements via e-mail. To subscribe, send an e-mail to: " courier-request@ictp.it ", leave the Subject empty, and type in the body of the message: subscribe "your e-mail address". Any comments or suggestions on this service are most welcome, please address them to "pub_off@ictp.it "

Retrieving Information via E-mail


Information on a specific ICTP activity of the Scientific Calendar can also be retrieved via E-mail through this simple procedure: Send an email to the e-mail address associated to the activity (smrNNNN@ictp.it) using as Subject "get info" . This will enable you to receive a description of the activity and a list of the associated documents (The documents are listed inside the description, under the header 'Documents'.)

If you then send another mail to the same address with Subject: "get document_name" (where document_name is one of the documents listed in the message describing the activity: for instance "Bulletin" or "Announcement" or "Application_form", you will receive a copy of the requested document (as an attachment, if it is not simple text; in the body of the mail, if it is text).

OTHER TRAVEL SUPPORT FOR ICTP ACTIVITIES


The forms, accessed as above, can be used by all to apply for local/travel support from ICTP. In addition, some Member States have signed Agreements with ICTP to make available -- for their own nationals -- a small number of travel fellowships, for participation in various ICTP activities. We list these below, together with the contact information for the relevant agency.
