All students and post-docs are strongly encouraged to apply for a $400 Outstanding Abstract Award.  Getting such an award will reduce the registration cost by $400.  Simply state at the bottom of your abstract that you would like to apply for the Outstanding Abstract Award.  Abstracts with this statement will be evaluated by the awards committee.  We will be able to make several awards.  The goal is to attract and reward outstanding student and post-doctoral researchers, and allow them to attend the workshop at a much reduced registration rate. 

* In order to register as a student/post-doc, please send an email to IFRS2018@wfu.edu with the following statement: "(Name) certify that I am a student/post-doctoral fellow currently working towards a recognized degree or post-doctoral training." You will need to show a valid student/post-doc ID at the registration desk.

** This option is intended for students only.  It includes all the options of the full meeting package, except the room at Graylyn.  Instead, in this option, the rooms are student dorm rooms or apartments located on the Wake Forest University campus.  These are basic, one bedroom apartments, including linens and towels.  They are about 2 km from the Graylyn conference center.  It is an easy walk (25 minutes) or bike ride (10 minutes, free bikes are available at Graylyn) along a scenic, safe walkway.  A shuttle will also run between Graylyn and the dorm rooms. If you chose this option, please send an email to IFRS2018@wfu.edu with the following statement: "(Name) certify that I am a student currently working towards a recognized degree." You will need to show a valid student ID at the registration desk.
