STEP 6:  Chairs/Co-Chairs – Publication Information

To facilitate dissemination of information discussed during ISCTM meetings, we encourage publications from ISCTM sessions. Chairs will discuss during the session development calls. (ISCTM Publication Guidelines)

Travel Arrangements:
In order to meet ISCTM’s fiscal responsibilities, the Society endeavors to operate its meetings as close to break even as possible, hopefully in the black. The Executive does not wish to raise additional revenue through increasing registration fees, so we must keep a close watch on expenses.  Therefore, we ask speakers requesting reimbursement to keep this in mind when arranging travel, specifically, to book flights enough ahead of travel dates to take advantage of the lower fares. (ISCTM Speaker Reimbursement Policy)
