Participation and Travel Grants

There is no conference fee for participants. The Volkswagen Foundation covers all venue-related costs including meals.

Invited speakers and participants who are funded by the Foundation (as principle investigators or staff employed through the grant) within the following calls are eligible for a reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs:

  • Call "Extreme Events: Modeling, Analysis, and Prediction"
  • Project renewals "Complex Networks as a Phenomenon across Disciplines"


Please keep the original receipt of your hotel, train and/or economy flight ticket. Business or first class flights are not refundable. Transfers can only be considered when using public means of transport (i.e. no taxi receipts). Forms will be provided to claim your travel expenses. We can only pay the refundable costs after your trip home and after we have received the required travel documents via conventional mail (completed form, original tickets, etc.). We are sorry that the administrative rules do not allow any other procedure.

Other scientists interested in the conference topic are welcome as well. However, there are no travel grants available.

Please contact the program committee (bischler(at)volkswagenstiftung.de) for registration details as the total number of guests is limited.
