The conference is hybrid in the minimal sense that we will enable authors to give their presentation-at-a-distance, and we will stream the conference and enable questions to be asked from a distance; but that is all. So on-line participation is possible, but support will be minimal: after two years of pandemic, we want to very strongly encourage you to come in person if you can!


We are aware that due to COVID-19, some visas are taking longer to process than normal. Therefore, if you need a visa, we suggest that you begin applying for it as soon as possible. If you need a letter for a visa, please use the option in the registration form to request one. Alternatively, you can email the local chairs, including details of any accepted papers.

Student Travel Grants

There are a limited number of travel grants available to support students with accepted papers to attend the conference, the exact number of available grants and amount will be determined later. If you would like to apply for a student travel grant, you can do so using the following form: Student travel grant application
