The organizers have limited funds to provide financial aid
for participants with no other form of support. These funds will be
used to help cover the registration and lodging. If you wish to apply,
fill the appropriate fields in the registration form and send it
before 26 March 2004, without payment.
The financial assistance commitments will be made on
or before 16 April. A message will be sent with the notification of
the financial aid status. The level of support to be provided
will depend upon the number of requests and the total amount of funds
available. All people requesting financial aid are expected to have
submitted an abstract on their original research for presentation
To avoid any incidents of visas being refused or unduly delayed,
we remind that visas should be applied for very
early, at least three months before the conference!
To secure IUPAP sponsorship, the organizers have provided assurance
that QFS2004 will be conducted in accordance with IUPAP principles
as stated in the ICSU-Document "Universality of Science" (sixth
edition, 1989) regarding the free circulation of scientists for
international purposes. In particular, no bona fide scientist will
be excluded from participation on the grounds of national origin,
nationality, or political considerations unrelated to science.
