The students who asked for financial support during their registration will receive the benefits listed below. The money will be reimbursed in Antofagasta during the meeting and only after completing some minor paperwork (see below). Please note that this benefit only applies to those postgraduate students who requested support at the time of registering for the meeting.

  • All the students who requested support will receive 75,000 CLP.
  • If you requested support and your poster is accepted by the SOC, you will receive additional 55,000 CLP, or…
  • …if you requested support and your talk is accepted by the SOC, you will receive additional 75,000 CLP
  • Please note that you will only receive the larger of the two bonuses if you had both a poster and a talk accepted by the SOC.
  • If you are enrolled in a university based on some cities outside Santiago you may also receive an extra bonus.
    • Concepción: 20,000 CLP.
    • Valparaiso: 10,000 CLP.

For example, a postgraduate student from Valparaiso who requested support and now has a poster accepted by the SOC will receive a total aid of 140,000 CLP.

Important notes regarding the grants

  • You will need to bring the following with you:
    • Travel tickets. This will be retained by the LOC staff so be careful in keeping your return tickets with you!
    • A photocopy of both sides of your ID card, which will be also retained by the LOC. The LOC will not be able to provide facilities for photocopies, so please have this ready.
  • You will need to sign a standard receipt according to CONICYT rules to receive the funds. The LOC will have these receipts ready for you to sign.
  • The funding will be distributed during March 1st (strongly encouraged) at the registration desk in Hotel Antofagasta and, alternatively, on March 3rd (time to be announced on the same day). There will be no other opportunities to receive the funds and the LOC will understand that a student is waving their right to the support if he or she misses both dates.
  • No other financial support will be provided for the stay in Antofagasta. However, a list of inexpensive accommodations is already published in the “Accommodation” section of this website.
