Registration Support

A limited number of discounted and waived registrations are available for students, post-docs, early career researchers, advocates, affected communities, and participants from low- and middle-income countries [1]. Requests for registration support from individuals who do not fall into one of these categories will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

If you would like to be considered for a discounted or waived registration, please fill out this form to confirm your eligibility. To allow us to provide as many registration support awards as possible, please only request registration support if you do not have any other source of funds to cover your registration fee.
