Each year, Elsevier, the MWS manager, sends out email shots advertising the Symposium. For MWS 2017, they will send 21 shots, for a total of 882,000 worldwide. This is how they attracted 8 attendees from South Korea last January, of 345 from 32 countries.
Elsevier pays for the use of 75% of these addresses.
And our Foundation is linked to the MWS website. Two clicks on the logo and the Foundation website appears. One more click and the BMB website is there .
No way we could do this ourselves, even if we could afford it.
And BMB folk don’t need to pay the plane fare from Seoul. Just apply for a fee waiver and take the Metro.
Fee waivers at once for anyone displaying a poster. One waiver per poster . Go to the MWS website and enter via the UMMSM portal. After the poster deadline of November 7, if funds remain (they did not remain last year), waivers will be awarded in order of application.
