No registration fee will be charged by the IAEA for participants to attend in the meeting. Host services such as accommodation, meals, social programmes, etc., are to be arranged between participants and the Host representative. As a general rule, the IAEA does not pay the costs for attendance to the meeting (i.e. travel and living expenses) of participants. However, limited funds are available to help meet the cost of attendance and participation of a few selected specialists mainly from developing countries with low economic resources. Generally, not more than one grant will be awarded to any one developing country. The grants awarded will be in the form of lump sums usually covering part of the cost of attendance.

If governments wish to apply for a grant on behalf of one of their specialists, they should address specific requests to the IAEA Scientific Secretary at the International Atomic Energy Agency to this effect.
Governments should ensure that applications for grants:

a) are received by the IAEA before 15 July 2008;
b) are accompanied by a duly completed and signed Grant Form C and an estimate of a valid travel agent of the flight costs from/to the duty city in their country and Vienna.


A participant shall, in addition to the above, have an accepted contribution to be eligible for grant support Applications that do not comply with the conditions mentioned above cannot be considered. Awards will be announced by the second half of August 2008.
