The organizers of the conference have the possibility to apply for partial funding of travel and accommodation costs to support active participants (i.e. oral or poster presenters) from countries in Eastern Europe.
A potential funding will be provided by the SCOPES programme (Scientific co-operation between Eastern Europe and Switzerland).
All details regarding this funding and how to apply for can be found here [click here].
Because of the time needed for processing the applications, the submission deadline for contributions to travel and accommodation costs for participants from Eastern Europe is January 31, 2012. Incomplete applications, applications not complying with the criteria, as well as applications arriving after January 31, 2012, cannot be considered.
