FIMSA Travel Awards

The JSI will provide travel awards to young researchers who submit an abstract for Workshop from Asia-Oceania region outside of Japan to the 51st Annual Scientific Meeting in Kumamoto (December 7-9, 2022). The application deadline is July 29, 2022.


Each awardee will receive 100,000 JPY for travel support, be free of registration and have an opportunity to give a presentation at the meeting.
We have decided to convene a hybrid meeting: a combination of in-person and virtual meetings (on-site and online). Although the symposiums are conducted both online and on-site, we are planning to hold workshops and poster sessions on-site only.
Please note that each awardee who will be able to visit Japan for their presentation can receive the travel support and certificate, but you will be able to receive only the certificate when you can not visit.
