Sponsorship

Sponsorship_Prospectus_ICS17

ICS 2017 encourages sponsorship from industry, government, and institutions. Sponsorship can take the form of monetary and in-kind contributions. In general, contributions are used for various purposes ranging from honoraria for keynote speakers, prizes for best papers / posters, improved social events (receptions, conference dinner), special consideration on registration costs, and travel support for students. Targeted sponsorship for specific ICS 2017 support is welcomed and a list of opportunities is provided below.
