Applications for travel support will be accepted only after the results of the organized session and individual abstract review process is complete (early September 2016). Applications will only be accepted from those who have had an individual abstract accepted (for poster and/or oral presentation) or who are named contributors within an accepted organized session that does not have external funding. You will be asked whether travel support is needed when submitting your abstract. The number of scholarships offered per organized session will be dependent on funding availability.
