  • no more than 35 years old at the time of the conference
  • national of a Member State of the European Union or of an Associated State

B) covers a larger fraction of the expenses of about some 10 European researchers working outside Europe (of any age), who meet the following criteria of eligibility:
  • national of a EU Member State or an Associated State
  • working outside member States and Associated States at the time of the conference
C) covers 50% of the expenses of the invited speakers, irrespective of their nationality and affiliation.

It may be possible to give either a discount on the registration fee, or a cheaper accomodation.
