Travel Awards

Graduate-level trainees, post-doctoral trainees, or junior faculty members (defined for this purpose as non-tenure-track faculty or tenure-track for less than three years) are eligible to receive a travel award. Abstracts of eligible authors requesting to be considered for travel awards will be reviewed by the Organizing Committee and International Program Committee, excluding any committee members who may have a conflict of interest. The Organizing Committee and International Program Committee will select a limited number of abstracts for receipt of travel awards of 100,000 Japanese yen each, depending on available funds. Evaluation of abstracts for travel awards will be based on a combination of innovation of the project, scientific rigor of the approach, financial need (lack of other funding to enable attendance), and voluntarily self-reported membership in a traditionally underrepresented group. It is important to understand that financial need and voluntarily reported membership in an underrepresented group are only two of the factors considered.
