The ISI and its Associations actively encourage participation of developing country members and non-members where possible for various conferences, including the ISI World Statistics Congresses. In the recent past, we have obtained funding for developing country participants through the World Bank Fund and the NASS-ERS Fund. Each funding opportunity comes with its own sets of rules and conditions with regard to the type of paper or presentation that is required as a contribution to the scientific programme.
