Travel awards are available to FOCIS members only who submit an abstract and are chosen for presentation at FOCIS 2017. The number and amount of the awards is based upon several factors including geographic location, placement of abstract within the FOCIS program and funds available.
The FOCIS Scientific Program Committee has sole discretion regarding placement of abstracts within the FOCIS program. Abstracts are considered for either oral or poster presentations. Please indicate your preference for oral or poster presentation format during online submission.
Presenting authors must submit the abstract and must be prepared to present the abstract at FOCIS 2017 should it be accepted. Posters will not be allowed without an accompanying presenter.
Abstracts accepted for presentation (either oral or poster) and properly registered by April 7, 2017 will be published as a supplement to the Scientific Program and in PDF format on the FOCIS website.
