IAPR Travel Stipends

The IAPR Executive Committee has decided to announce travel stipends *of US$1000 each to be granted to 50 authors with accepted papers. The application should be clear in that this author will be the presenter of the paper. The selection process will start soon and the authors granted will be informed   by e-mail.  Our strategy this year is to give high priority to PhD students. We will also favor authors of multiple papers. Other criteria we will use is to consider whether the author comes from a country with financial difficulty to travel. Due to limitations in our budget, we regret supporting only a small part of the application.
