Location
Buenos Aires, Argentina
If you need a visa, organisers can provide a letter of support.

WHAT DOES IT COST?
$700 registration fee
This includes all local transportation costs, food, lodging, conference participation, and entrance fees to cultural activities. The only additional expenses on the student's part are airfare to get to Buenos Aires and any souvenirs!

Organisers understand students have particular challenges in funding their travel. They encourage students to start now with seeking funding from universities and local companies. They have had many past students who have gotten their travel funded, simply by showing university administrators or local companies that they will be important representatives. Please register as soon as possible so the organisers can work with you to find funding sources.
