Sponsorships will be granted first to authors of papers (oral presentations), then to authors of posters. Moreover, applicants from developing countries are given priority over applicants from other countries.

The deadline for this application is April 15, 2016, and you will receive notice of our decision by May 1st, 2016.

Stipendiates will be expected to assist with small tasks during the conference, such as packing conference bags, assisting excursion guides, updating the conference bulletin board. We are looking forward to your contributions!
