The Nordic Association for Semiotic Studies (NASS) has allocated funds for two measures in relation to NASS IX:

Graduate student grants: The participation of up to 10 graduate students will be supported financially by NASS, with 150 Euro each. Nominees for student grants will be selected shortly after abstract acceptance, and grant winners will be notified directly. Practicalities concerning transfer of the sum of 150 Euro will be discussed with each successful grant winner.

Graduate student prize: A prize will be awarded for the best graduate student presentation at the conference. The prize winner will receive a symbolic premium along with a letter from NASS acknowledging the participant’s merit.

Both measures will be decided on by a NASS committee counting the following members: Luis Emilio Bruni (President of NASS), Morten Tønnessen (Secretary of NASS), Sara Lenninger (Treasurer of NASS) and Inesa Sahakyan (NASS´ Organisational Assistant).

Summer School 2015 is four-day event taking place from August 17 to 20 in Tartu, Estonia.

Tartu Summer School of Semiotics is a new series of gatherings that brings together representatives of semiotics and related disciplines with the aim to provide an environment to converse about core issues in semiotics that are of disciplinary as well as transdisciplinary relevance. It revives the tradition of Kääriku Summer Schools of Semiotics held by Tartu-Moscow School of Semiotics. As its forerunner, the Tartu Summer School of Semiotics is a gathering that aspires to promote dialogue between scholars and synthesis between approaches.

In 2015 the Summer School hosts the IX conference of Nordic Association for Semiotic Studies.
