I am a PhD student - can I register as a student?
Yes! Get a letter from your supervisor and upload it when you submit your abstract. Click here for a sample student verification letter.
I am a PostDoc - can I register as a student?
Can I get a grant to present my work as a poster presentation, or does it have to be in an oral presentation?
You can get a student travel grant to present at the SMM2017 in any of the accepted formats – poster, speed talk, oral talk, or video presentation.
When will you announce the results of the grant awards? I can only attend the conference if I get funding.
When do I have to register for the conference?
It is most affordable to register by the early bird registration – 12PM (noon) ADT on July 13, 2017 (a savings of $50 US dollars!). If you have been notified that you have a student travel grant, you must register by the early bird deadline or your travel award will be reallocated to someone else.
I've recently graduated. Can I still submit an abstract / register as a 'student'?
If you are no longer a student, but are planning on presenting work at the conference that you conducted as a student, and you graduated less than one year ago, then you can still register as a student! You will also be considered for student awards.
Note: A letter from your professor/institute verifying that you completed the work you will be presenting as a student will be required.
