Q: I am an international student; do I qualify for a travel fellowship?
A: YES! We highly encourage students and early career scientists from any and all countries to apply for travel fellowships.
Q: What are the requirements to apply for a travel fellowship?

A: Travel fellowship acceptance notifications will be sent out in beginning of September. The applicants will have 3 days to accept.

A: The students should bring their invoices (relative to flight, hotel and/or registration expenses) to the conference venue. During the subsequent month the corresponding amount of money will be reimbursed.
Q: Will I receive an invitation letter if my poster/presentation is accepted?
A: We do not send any invitation letters (neither electronic, nor in paper) on poster/presentation acceptance. We only send a confirmation email to the author who submitted the abstract. This author is considered to be the presenting author and is not necessarily the first author.
Q: If I am selected for an oral presentation, should I also bring a poster?
A: We strongly encourage you to bring a poster even if you were selected to present your work orally.
