offered a transport grant of approximately 120 Euros. Please note that 
this is not a confirmed amount and may vary. Unfortunately, due to the 
restricted budget, we are not able to offer grants to participants from 
outside Europe. Participants are encouraged to seek financial support 
from their own universities.

Cancelling your Participation

We would like to receive applications only from those who are definitely

 future KSGSC conferences.
