For those who have been promised support, reimbursements for travel/local expenses will be processed after the meeting is over.  We will need copies of your receipts as well as the original flight ticket stubs.  Payment will be by bank transfer in US dollars from Vanderbilt University.  This will take several weeks.

Important notes for non-U.S. residents:
