Financial support: Limited financial support is available to partially
offset travel expenses of some participants. The criteria for granting
support include whether the participant has alternative financial support
for the conference, and whether the participant is presenting a talk at
the conference. Preference is given to graduate students and early career
researchers. The amount of support is contingent on the budget
constraints. University accounting regulations require completing certain
forms online BEFORE the conference, and submitting original receipts of
expenses. Reimbursements will be sent after the conference. The deadline
