Is financial support available?
While ATALM has a small budget to support the attendance of a few presenters, these funds are reserved for presenters who offer multiple presentations, including pre-conferences and multiple conference sessions, with an emphasis on sessions that provide hands-on experiences. Presenters are responsible for registering for the conference, paying the conference registration fee, and securing and paying for travel and lodging. Session passes are discouraged and must be approved by the Conference Director. Scholarships are available and qualifying presenters receive priority.
