    For every 20 accepted abstracts, 1 complimentary registration is provided to the Session Convener for deciding the recipient.
    Total funding available is up to 120 complimentary registrations.

    Who is Eligible?

    a.  All regular and invited speakers are eligible

    b.  The recipient must be an author-presenter and the benefit is not transferable.

    c.  Conveners may not award themselves. Society policy forbids such practices

    How the scheme operates?
    For each session, the quota of AOGS Comps is auto-computed after abstract review is completed and only authors with an accepted abstract can be considered. Convener(s) can access this information on MARS. The Convener needs decide and make the selection online as soon as possible.
    Once selected, the registration fee of the AOGS Comps recipient will automatically be set to zero.
