Program for Support of Developing Countries Young Authors’ Attendance at IFAC Congresses and Symposia

According to this Program, the IFAC Foundation is open to consider applications for support of young authors’ attendance at the IFAC INCOM 24 Symposium. The support consists of waiving the registration fees.


Eligible for support are authors of accepted technical papers – citizens of a developing country/region not affiliated to or supported by an institution in a high-income country/region – whose age will be less than 30 years during the Symposium. Only one author per paper can be supported. A limited number of applications will be supported.


A developing country/region is understood to be one which is not on the attached list of high-income economies.


Applications should be addressed to the Symposium organizer by eligible authors.


A presentation of the paper at the Symposium by the winner is a requisite for support.


Award recipients must write a short report (a few lines) about their work, paper title, and stating what the attendance meant to them, and what they learnt. The recipients give their consent that the report together with their picture and a brief bio will be uploaded on the Foundation website.
