The organizers offer additional limited support possibilities for
ETAPS 2003 participants who are not eligible for the EC-HSC grants

So, if you need some financial support, apply under the scheme
described below.

Financial support may cover (up to 100% of):

  - ETAPS main conferences and satellite events registration fees
  - travel expenses
  - subsistence and accommodation costs in Warsaw

For applying, please send an e-mail to


The email should contain the following information about the
applicant: name, gender, birth date, nationality, current
student/working position and affiliation, and contact information
(email address, fax, postal address). Please also state duration and
the planned dates of your stay in Warsaw for ETAPS 2003, as well as
the character of participation in ETAPS 2003 (in particular: please
indicate if you are an author or a co-author of an accepted paper at
one of the main conferences, an author or a co-author of a

Those who wish to apply for refund of travel costs must additionally send:
 - an estimate of travel expenses (with the above application), and
 - not later than <b>March, 24th 2003</b>, a copy of the ticket  
   with <b>explicitly stated cost </b> of the ticket. In case the
   ticket does not contain an explicit cost, an invoice of the purchase
   of the ticket should be sent as well. The copy of the ticket or an
   invoice should be faxed at the number <b>+4822-5544400</b>. Please bring 
   the originals with you to Warsaw.
   Eligible costs are the cheapest airfare in economy class, or a
   second class train ticket, or a bus ticket.

Grant applicants should register at the web site of ETAPS 2003 <tu
URL>, as all other participants. However, do not forget to mark that
you're applying for support from ETAPS 2003 organizers, and refrain
from paying the participation fees until we send you our decision
concerning the support. If you apply for support to cover
your registration and you are not granted this support, your
registration fee will be calculated according to the date of your
registration, and not that of your actual payment, as long as you pay
the fee within 7 days after your application was rejected.

In any case you should yourself take care of your hotel reservation.
If you book your hotel using the service provided via the conference
web page you should also pay the hotel deposit as required.
