Funding:

The Organizing Committee will decide on reimbursement of travel costs taking into account the demographic details and justification provided in the submission form. The presenter of the paper will be the participant applying for reimbursement. You will be asked to mark the presenting author in the submission form.

If the number of applicants exceeds the number that can be supported by the available budget, the responsible Committee of the Action will select applicants to be reimbursed. The selection will be based on the quality of the received abstract and the applicant’s contribution to the Action. Geographic and gender balance, and inclusiveness of Early Career Investigators will be considered. Priority will be given to the applications coming from Inclusiveness Target Countries. The list of participants selected for reimbursement will be announced together with the notification of acceptance. 

Note that MultiplEYE can only cover the expenses for a limited number of places. Therefore, we also welcome participants who can cover their expenses through their universities or other sources. Applicants who apply but are not selected as eligible for reimbursement are nevertheless welcome to join the conference at their own expense. 

Formal invitations will be sent out to all selected participants (with and without reimbursement) via the e-COST platform. 
According to the COST rules, all participants who are eligible for reimbursement are expected to initially pay all the expenses themselves and provide evidence of expenses incurred via the e-COST platform. Participants will be reimbursed after the meeting for the attended days and travel time. Please refer to page 85 of the COST Annotated Rules to see precise calculations.
