The ISI may sponsor conferences organized by External Organisation. The guidelines for sponsoring are presented below. In case the request for sponsoring is granted the conference may carry the ISI logo in its advertising, materials and on the website.

 

The Conference theme should be of interest to ISI/Associations’ members: If it is a very specific area of interest for the conference, then it is more appropriate to pass on to the appropriate Association if possible;

 

Reputation and standing of the organisation holding the conference is to be carefully considered; Also consider their other sources of funding;

 

Must have one ISI elected or regular member on the programme committee to represent ISI interests;

 

ISI members can participate at reduced registration fee (lowest category);

 

Request for sponsorship to be submitted in writing to the ISI PO at least 3 months in advance of the conference;

 

No financial support will be given;

 

Careful consideration for timing of the conference in case it coincides with ISI;

 

The ISI logo is to be included in conference material and on the conference website. The event is to be placed in the online ISI Calendar of Events and possibly an announcement in the ISI News Items.
