Thanks to generous support from the NSF, financial support will be available to cover or partially cover the travel and local expenses of many conference participants, with priority given to graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and participants without other means of support. To request support please make the appropriate selection on the registration page and register no later than August 31 .

Original, itemized receipts are required for any expenses for which reimbursement is claimed. Note that airfare reimbursement from NSF funds requires the use of a U.S. flag carrier (i.e., a U.S. airline).

Graduate students are encouraged to share rooms and will be reimbursed on this basis. Please contact organizer Emily Peters ( if you would like help finding a roommate.
