Executive Committee of the ISOP will consider requests to support small local in-person or hybrid meetings to be held during 2022 from organizers that are ISOP members. Due to exceptional circumstances related to the pandemic, the grants-in-aid program for affiliated sections will be subsumed into this initiative for 2022. A maximum of US $80,000 will be committed in total, and a maximum of US $8,000 will be committed per meeting (max. US $6000 for travel of students and postdocs who are ISOP members in the time of the meeting – up to US $500 per person; max. US $2000 for other expenses). Proposals do not need to come from formal ISOP sections/affiliates, but the meetings will be considered ISOP-sponsored events. Organizers will submit a brief report of how funds were spent after the meeting.
