    are the scholars free of the accommodation and transportation?

    • Hi Nathan,

      I don’t think so. It would be very costly for the government to shoulder transportation cost such as airfare for all scholars. What is feasible is that you submit an abstract. If it gets approved for presentation, it would be easier to ask DOST for financial assistance. You may like to email Dr. Gerardo Janairo, chair of the Scientific Papers Committee (

        thank you ateneophysicsnews..

        sadly we don’t have any papers to submit. and we would like to attend..we are around 20+ scholars here in our school. by the way saan po ba ang final venue?any updates?

  2. Nathan,

    Final venue, as far as I know, is just in Manila. So the scholars that are expected to attend are those in Manila and neighboring cities or provinces. No other updates yet.

    its a good news to my friend in Physics Department here in Central Mindanao University. 🙂
