Financial Aid

All who look for help attending the conference are welcomed to apply. The organizers will review all applications and allocate resources based on both the conference budget and the applicants’ conditions. While we hope to support everyone to participate in the community, the budget is unfortunately limited, and so is the financial aid program. In cases of insufficient resources, we wish to support those who are most in need and to maximize community gain available from the applicant’s participation. As such, we may be forced to turn down your application to prioritize others.


The financial aid program is open to all contributors, attendees, students, and speakers and aims to provide assistance to those who otherwise might not be able to attend the conference.

Auxiliary Items

The financial aid auxiliary items encompass conference fees, travel grants, transit provisions including Taiwan High Speed Rail and Taiwan Railway passes, economy-class airfare to/from any Taiwanese airport, and accommodation expenses.


Once your financial aid application is accepted, you will receive a discount code via email for conference registration. After registering, you can seek reimbursement for approved travel expenses by submitting your receipt at the reception desk of the venue. We will process your reimbursement promptly, ensuring you are reimbursed for your approved travel costs.

  • Describe what makes your situation unique. Say, you might represent a particular group that is not well-represented.
  • Describe how other attendees would benefit from your presence. Say, you’ll share your experience, or can help raise awareness of an issue in the community, etc.
