Travel Support to the URBIO2010

The purpose of the Travel Support is to help participants travel to the URBIO2010 by subsidizing partial travel cost. A person eligible to apply to the travel support is that who has applied to a presentation at the conference but lacks the financial resources to visit Japan. We are planning to provide 100,000 Yen for recipients from East Asian & ASEAN countries and 150,000 Yen for recipients from other counties. Candidates must send the completed Travel Support Application Form and the same presentation abstract that has been submitted to the URBIO2010 via e-mail to Ayumi Imanishi (Dr.).

The deadline for the travel support application is February 28, 2010 (no later application is accepted).

The submitted application will be judged by the academic affairs division of the organizing committee. The result will be notified to the applicant by March 31, 2010. The subsidy will be provided at the conference reception desk. Recipients must hand in your voucher of the air tickets.

NOTICE: The number of recipients of subsidization will be decided by the amount of funds and donations for the conference. Currently, we are planning to provide travel support to 15 or more participants.
