According with IUPAB sponsorship policy :
IUPAB Congress: IUPAB will provide up to 60 000 € for the triennial IUPAB Congress. Funding will include a direct grant to the organizers, as well as support for student travel to the congress (normally 30 000 € for each). IUPAB will propose co-chairs for scientific sessions. The scientific program will need the approval of IUPAB. A bid should be sent to the Secretary General according to the deadline to be established, normally 6 months in advance of the General Assembly that will decide the organization.
As a consequence of the postponement of the 2020 Congress the deadline to submit bids will be: 1st of May 2021.
The proposals must include information about the proposed venue, a tentative scientific programme, information about the town, a tentative financial budget and any other aspects that could be relevant.
