Participants who receive financial support from the conference should pay their hotel bills and submit the receipts for hotel and other expenses together with the Visitor's Expense Report within 30 days after the close of the conference for reimbursement up to the amount of the promised financial support.
We have received a grant from
the National Science Foundation to provide financial assistance
to graduate students, younger investigators (Ph.D after June 30, 2012), and researchers without
alternative sources of financial support for attending the conference. Typically we can supplement
travel and lodging expenses in the $300-$700 range per participant, depending on priority, needs,
and number of requests for financial assistance.
In order to receive financial support you must register online and indicate on the registration
form that you would like to receive financial support. A registration must be completed before
September 30th for a full consideration. Other factors being equal, the funds will be distributed
according to the chronological order in which the requests are received. Please note that in
accordance with NSF regulations only flights on US flag air carriers will be reimbursed.
A current graduate student needs to confirm you status by asking your academic adviser to send a
brief letter of reference by email to the local organizer Elton Hsu
download this package, where
you will find the complete information for submitting
your receipts and the Visitor's Expense Report for reimbursement. Submit them by email or regular mail
within 30 days after the close of the conference to: Reimbursement Processing, Department of Mathematics,
Northwestern University, 2033 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL 60208.
