Thanks to offlode for providing NZ$1000 in student prizes, and for presenting those prizes at the conference dinner.

The NZSA has some funds available to support students at New Zealand Universities traveling to the conference. The amount available depends on how many students apply and the distance each has to travel. To be sure of consideration, any student interested in travel support should contact Roger Littlejohn before 14 August.

Students are encouraged to present either a talk (but the programme of talks is now full, as of 8 August) or a poster; please look over the information about Poster Presentations and email as soon as possible (and certainly by 21 August) if you want to present a poster at NZSA 2009.

Students only pay half the fees of other NZSA members, for both the conference and the workshop; any students who are not already members of NZSA get free membership for one year, which includes four issues of the Australian & New Zealand Journal of Statistics.

Student Prizes
Offlode are providing NZ$1000 in student prizes, to be awarded to the top student presentations; talks and posters are both eligible.
