Josef Hron announced the call for applications for the Fizeau exchange program. "The Fizeau exchange visitors program in optical interferometry funds (travel and accommodation) visits of researchers to an institute of his/her choice (within the European Community) to perform collaborative work and training on one of the active topics of the European Interferometry Initiative. The visits will typically last for one month, and strengthen the network of astronomers engaged in technical, scientific and training work on optical/infrared interferometry. The program is open for all levels of astronomers (Ph.D. students to tenured staff). Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek also partial support from their home or host institutions. The deadline for applications is March 15. Fellowships can be awarded for missions starting in May 2013. Applications for attending the VLTI school 2013 will be considered but funding will be coordinated with the school organizers."
