Application Requirements:

  • Applications are due by 1 June 2021.

    • As a waiver or reduction of registration fees.
    • As a waiver or partial waiver of local accommodation booking (in a designated ICSMGE 2021 hotel determined by the LOC).
  • All applicants must demonstrate a willingness to fund their own travel and visa application costs for entry into Australia.

Successful Candidates

Successful candidates must agree to provide a summary report of approximately 500 words including images (maximum two) for inclusion on the ICSMGE 2021 and AGS website and for publicity purposes. This report must be delivered within four weeks of attending the Conference.
