The applications will be assessed by the SPB Directive Committee. Candidates will be notified about the evaluation outcome via e-mail by March 1, 2022.

Until the announcement of the evaluation results, the registration/participant status of applicants for SPB bursaries will be held as pending. After outcome notifications, successful applicants will be waived for the registration fee, whereas the others will be able to switch to the Young Scientist category in the Congress registration system to complete registration with payment.

If you are interested in oral presentation opportunities, please answer 'yes' to a question on this in the abstract submission system. Assessment for this will be carried out later by the Session Chairs of the Congress in consultation with the Local Organizing Committee, with notifications due by April 7, 2022.
