Financial Support for Attendees

We are committed to supporting the involvement of participants at all career stages. As a result, we have obtained funds to help defray the cost of attending the conference. These include funds for ground transportation (car or train). Priority for these funds will be for early career researchers or attendees facing financial hardship.


We have nursing rooms conveniently close to the conference rooms. Our NSF grant also contains funds to support speakers and participants in need of childcare while attending the conference.

Applying for Support

Persons interested in receiving financial support for this conference should indicate this with their registration. Please describe the nature of the costs and estimate the cost of each item, as well as the total cost. We wish to distribute the funds to help as many people as possible, but we will give priority to those who have a pressing need.
