Attendees who have been offered support through DIMACS should keep two rules in mind. Reimbursement for air travel can only be made for travel on US Flag Carriers, REGARDLESS OF COST. (For example, travel on airlines such as United, Continental, USAir, and others that are United States based are allowable. Travel on airlines such as Lufthansa, SAS, Air Canada and other airlines based outside the US cannot be reimbursed by DIMACS.)
The second rule to keep in mind is to get original receipts for all reimbursable expenses.
Those who have been offered reimbursement through National Chiao Tung University should send the back copy of their airplane ticket together with receipt from travel agency (if available) to Frank Hwang. The rules for US carriers do not apply in this case.
