Six travel grants of 1,000 Euro (approx. 160,000 JPY) and a waiver on the registration fees will be granted to early carrier scientists (PhD students or Post-docs).
These grants are prioritized for applicants coming from low- and middle-income countries (list compiled by the OECD).
Application Deadline: February 14 (Wed), 2024 => February 29 (Thu), 2024

The abstract template is available from the Abstract submission page at the WCPP2024 website (you can access after registration). The results will be announced to the applicants by e-mail by mid of March. You can postpone your registration fee payment until you know the results of the IPPS fellowship grant.
