Important information regarding potential student support for IDS2016

The following is important information related to potential student support for the IDS2016:

As clearly explained on our IDS2016 website, the additional student support offered to students CAN NOT BE GUARANTEED.

We have been overwhelmed by applications for student assistance, and so would like to make it clear that, in the case that it becomes possible, we will be in a position to offer assistance only to a LIMITED NUMBER of students. Our intention was to assist students from developing countries who would not otherwise be able to attend; even this support cannot yet be guaranteed, as we must first confirm the number of registrations to the symposium and therefore what funds will be generated to allocate towards supporting student participation. For any potential student support offered, you must provide your original receipts of credit card and/or other payments you have made for attending IDS2016. 

We are making every attempt to make possible a certain degree of support for students in need. However, please understand that, as much as we would like to support all of the worthy applications that we receive, financial constraints will make this impossible. As soon as we are in a position to know the number and identities of students that we can support, we will be in contact.  We thank you for your interest and understanding.

Best regards,

Reinhard Pienitz and the local organizing committee
