ISC2006 Travel grants

The Organising Committee will help participants mainly from developing countries to attend the Congress with a travel grant of up to ¥100,000 contribute towards travel cost to Japan and accommodation in Fukuoka. The Travel Grant will be given to successful applicants by the Congress chairman at the Congress. Therefore, applicants must pay the registration fee, abstract submission fee and any other fees by themselves prior to the Congress.
