JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship: Short-term Program

Travel Support for participants to 7ILC

Organizing Committee Members of 7ILC are making efforts to get financial support from some organizations in Japan that may help travel of some participants (especially younger researchers) to attend 7ILC. We are doing our best and will inform you when we get a bit of luck.  According to the application schedules for those supports, we may have the results after April 2018 for others. The rates of acceptance are not very high (about 10% for some supports), and we do need luck.

We recommend the participants to seek for travel supports in their own country. We will provide a letter of acceptance according to the schedule shown on the page for "Registration and Payment".
