There will be no fee for conference participants. Travel costs must be met from participants’ own resources, although limited funds will be available for authors of selected papers who are based in developing countries (see “RDW Fellowships” below). Interest in these funds should be indicated in the abstract proposal.
A unique aspect of the RDW Conference is the commitment to creating an environment for global research dialogue, especially between industrialized and developing countries. In this respect, a Fellowship fund has been established to support researchers from developing countries who may otherwise be prevented from attending. Interested researchers are strongly encouraged to submit their abstracts no later than 31 December 2016 (please note that this deadline for submission is one month earlier than the general deadline). Successful applicants will receive Fellowship grants of an amount determined by the estimated cost of travel and other expenses.
Important notice: Due to the level of interest in RDW Fellowship grants, from RDW2017 the Fellowships will be restricted to new applicants.
Grants are not available for applicants born in developing countries, but currently working or doing a PhD in developed countries.
