Scope and eligibility

The scientific meeting is open for participants from all countries that already joined the COST action FA0807.
Only researchers belonging to COST or non-COST eligible countries presenting a poster or an oral communication can be reimbursed by COST, besides the MC FA0807 members.
The executive committee will select the oral presentations from the submitted contributions.

The abstract submitted has to reflect a specific contribution to a WG; it can thus be the contribution of a single person or an consortium but it always should be an abstract for a specific WG; one person can therefore submit more than one abstract if he/she likes to participate in several WGs; the contribution of an consortium should be presented by only one person (generally first author).

Reimbursement rules:

Reimbursement will then be provided to a single person who had:
        - presented a contribution (=abstract)
        - a contribution that fits into the tasks of the WGs (approval by WG coordinators)
        - a participation that fits into the balance between countries and institutes
