We will use all this to support travels of plenary speakers, symposium organizers, or younger researchers who do not have any grants or official supports or fellowships to be used for their trip. 
The amount of support is only a part of travel fee that you spent and may vary based on their status and origin of travel and the total budget that can be used fo support.

If you are interested in receiving the travel support, please nominate yourself in the web-form below.  The first Period of selection will be done at the beginning of March, voted by the organization committee members and Scientific Advisory Board members.

The organization committee is doing our best to get more support from other grants or foundations.  We are now waiting for the results from four organizations that we submitted proposals, and if we have good luck and can secure more budget for travel support, we will inform the participants about further selection schedule in this page.

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".
