The EuroConference is supported by the European Community and funding is available to support some young researchers. It is intended for nationals of EC Member States and of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Israel, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Switzerland, who must all be under 35 years of age. There is a limited amount of support available, for USA participants (through the generous support from the NSF) and other EC residents (through the generous support of ESF and DGXII). Self-supporting participants of any age and nationality are welcome to apply.
