Financial support

We expect to provide limited financial support to contribute to travel and living expenses during the conference for those currently at an institution in Latin America. First priority will be given to junior faculty, graduate and postdoctoral students, and---in some exceptional cases---to qualified undergraduates. Please send a request of participant support to by the 15th of November. The PhD students requesting support should also ask a mentor to write a supporting letter of recommendation on their behalf.
