New events and functions at www.mims-infectantibio.se!

Information on several new events together with updated information on other events can now be found at the new “Events” page: http://ndpia.se/events/, for instance two activities organized with support from the MIMS affiliated Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics: Pathogens and immunity evasion strategies (Lund/Malmö) and Workshop in photomicrography and image processing for science (Umeå).

From now on registration to announced activities and/or application for co-funding of travel/accommodation will be performed via the new “Events” page. Events are also listed in a calendar at the start page and on the “Events” page. For all activities sponsored by the programme, registration and eventual application for co-funding for participation is performed by filling out an on-line form at the bottom of the page displaying the specific event. Only registered programme participants who are logged in can fill out the form. Logging in is performed via a specific function in the left sidebar.

Guide-lines on co-funding of travel and accommodation expenses for participation in activities announced via the MIMS affiliated Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics can be found at http://ndpia.se/about/the-doctoral-programme/travel-and-accommodation-support/. Please note that support will be based on a co-funding principle to allow support to as many participants as possible and to stimulate keeping down costs. Tips on low cost accommodation at sites where activities are given can be found at http://ndpia.se/accommodation/.

A function for editing participant’s profiles is found at http://ndpia.se/edit-profile/. All registered users, and those who have requested to be informed of new news posts, will receive an e-mail when a new item has been published on the web page. Posts will include information on new courses/activities and other relevant information. The most recent posts are listed at the start page and all posts can be found at: http://ndpia.se/news-archive-2/.

The web page and its associated functions are still under development and technical functions and layout/formatting is being refined. However, please do not hesitate to contact anna.holmstrom@umu.se if you have any questions or suggestions.
