Travel Grants

Travel Support & Young Scientist Travel Grant
Financial support will be available for a limited number of participants, especially for young scientists and students (under 35 years old as of 20 April 2017) from developing countries in the WESTPAC region. Application for partial support, either airfare or local expenditure only, will be strongly encouraged.
Applications for financial support will be evaluated on the basis of the submitted abstracts and geographical distribution. The organizers reserve the right to select the participants to be supported.
