Financial Support

General information

It is generally expected that authors of abstracts scheduled for presentation will secure their own funding for attending the conference.

However, a limited amount of the overall budget of the Assembly is reserved to assist Young Seismologist (YS) who wish to present their work at the AfSC General Assembly. Financial support includes a waiver of the registration fee (Conference bag with the program and abstract book and, Coffee breaks and welcome drink)

  • Each support award is granted to the contact author for a particular abstract. Should this abstract be withdrawn before the conference or should this abstract not be presented at the conference although the author who has been awarded is present at the conference, the award has to be returned, and the registration fee will be charged to the author.
  • Awards are non-transferable!
