  • An estimate of the conference registration fee.
  • A budget estimate, including a detailed breakdown of institutional and other expenses (eg costs for producing the abstract booklet, administrative assistance, keynote speakers, food, etc.). Please provide an explanation of how the costs will be covered, including anticipated revenue from registration fees and institutional support. All
