Co-sponsored by DIMACS and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
Talks in this conference are by invitation only. We are sorry that there is no room in the program for contributed papers.
Because of the interest exhibited, we have decided to hold a poster session at the DIMACS International Conference on Computational and Mathematical Epidemiology. Posters will be displayed on bulletin boards and presenters will make themselves available to answer questions/summarize their work to those who visit their poster. If you would like to be considered for inclusion in a poster session, please submit a title and short abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than May 15, 2002. We will give you an acceptance/rejection within a few days of the deadline.
Some financial support is expected to be available. How much we offer will depend on the number of applications received and in some cases might have to be limited to waiver of registration fees for some of the applicants.
Deadline for Applications: May 24, 2002

Our funding agencies require that we charge a registration fee during the course of the workshop. Registration fees include participation in the workshop, all workshop materials, breakfast, lunch, breaks and any scheduled social events (if applicable).

They should email their request for the reduced fee to the Workshop Coordinator at email@example.com. Include your name, the Institution you work for, your job title and a brief explanation of your situtation. All requests for reduced rates must be received before the preregistration deadline. You will promptly be notified as to the decision about it.

Attendees who have been offered support 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.
