Financial Support

UKC2023 supports student/post-doc oral/poster presenters during the UKC2023 and FIRE participants who present during the FIRE Symposium. When you receive an acceptance email from the UKC2023 or FIRE teams, we will share the link to apply for financial support.

The financial support is for a limited number of participants; please submit your paper as soon as possible and receive financial support from UKC2023.

Financial support includes the following:

  1. Registration discount: $ 100
  2. Lodging support: up to 3 nights, share the hotel room (2 participants/room) or 50% of the room cost (If you wish not to share a room and use the room by yourself, please let us know; the KSEA will only support the half of the hotel room charge)
  3. Network dinner support.
