Travel Awards are offered to participants in the Neuro2010 Meeting (held jointly by Japanese Neuroscience Society, Japanese Neurochemistry Society and Japanese Neural Network Society) who come from Asian nations or developing countries in the neighborhood of Japan, and who will give a presentation at the meeting. Details of the Travel Awards are as set out below.

A certificate will be conferred at an award ceremony to be held during the meeting.

The meeting registration fee will be waived. 

Recipients will be invited to attend a reception to be held during the meeting.

Recipients will be awarded a prize money. This prize money will be given as a partial support for the traveling expenses (the airfare from the recipient's country of residence to Japan, domestic transportation fee in Japan). Please refer to the attached file " the table of the amount of the prize money " for details about the classification by countries. The amount will not be increased under any circumstances. Each recipient must bear the shortfall. The prize money will be paid at the meeting venue, in Japanese yen.

The recipients will be invited to attend the “International Exchange Meeting for Young Researchers”, which will be held on September 1st (the day before the start of Neuro2010)
Recipients who decide to attend this Meeting are requested to give a poster presentation of the research they intend to present at the meeting.

The recipients who attend the above meeting on September 1st will be provided with accommodation throughout Neuro2010, for four nights from September 1st to the 4th.

Recipients who will not attend the above meeting or intend to stay at other accommodations should arrange and pay the accommodation fees by themselves. Those who intend to stay before September 1st or after September 4th should also arrange and pay accommodation by themselves.

Persons who do not attend the meeting will have their award revoked.
