Event Details

Call for Early Abstracts! (IIFET Link)

Early abstract submission is open until 10 Dec! There are over 40 themes and special sessions to choose from!

The early abstract submission period is mainly intended for those who need an acceptance decision soon in order to apply for travel support from the conference organizers or other sources and who need more time to secure a visa to Spain. Authors who do not require an early decision may submit and abstract during the regular abstract submission period which will open 11 Dec 2019 and close 1 February 2020. 

If you are from AND reside in a developing country and wish to apply for travel support from the conference organizers (or other funding sources with early deadlines), please submit your abstract during the early abstract submission period. We are seeking developing country support funds but the number of travel grants we can offer is limited, so please expand your search for support to other agencies. The quality of abstracts will be a primary determinant in our competitive selection process. We prioritize support to citizens and residents of Low-Income and Lower-Middle-Income countries and, in some situations, can provide more limited support to Upper-Middle-Income country participants. Visit the World Bank site to find lists of countries in these categories.
