CALL FOR APPLICATIONS - EQUINOX SUMMIT MEDIA TRAVEL GRANTS

In June 2011, the non-profit Waterloo Global Science Initiative - a
partnership between Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and the
University of Waterloo - will be hosting the first Equinox Summit, a  a
highly focused international conference of leading scientists intended to
catalyze long-range policy and investments in technological solutions for
the future.

The first Equinox Summit, entitled Energy 2030, will focus on emerging
technologies in the generation, storage and distribution of energy - in
particular, electricity. It will bring together leading thinkers and
scientists from around the world to imagine what a low-carbon, energy-rich
society would be like in 2030, what technologies we need to invest in or
develop to make that a reality, and design a blueprint for how to get there.

The summit will take place in 5-9 June 2011 at the Perimeter Institute in
Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, at the new high-tech Hawking Center.

The organisers are offering a limited number of media travel grants to
assist journalists with transportation and accommodation costs to cover
Equinox Summit: Energy 2030.

Grants include: use of on-site newsroom with Wi-Fi, exclusive invitations to
the opening and closing receptions, access to influential Equinox Summit
participants, and more.

Applications must be submitted to Mr RJ Taylor, WGSI Communications Liaison,
no later than 9am USA EST on Monday, 16 May 2011.
