Every effort will be made to provide partial financial support to participants who have
no alternative source of funding. Preference will be given to graduate students and post-doctoral fellows
whose participation is not fully supported by other sources. Support requests should be
submitted as soon as possible, but no later than April 1, 2014. To do so, please print and complete
the support form,
and return it — along with a copy of your CV — to Brian Simanek or Doug Hardin by fax, email,
or postal mail.
Please be advised that according to U.S. immigration laws, individuals
who enter the U.S. and wish to be reimbursed for travel-related expenses should enter only on
a B-1/B-2, WB/WT, or J-1 visa; however, certain limitations pertaining to reimbursements apply. We advise
you to contact your local U.S. embassy or U.S. consulate to inquire which visa
rules (pertaining to reimbursements) apply to your country. We look forward to seeing you in
