A: Yes, registration at Eventbrite reserves a place at the workshop; fee payment to UVA on or before February 23, 2024, secures the place. If registration is canceled before February 23, the place will be made available to applicants on the waiting list.


Q; Is there a fee refund policy in case of unforeseen circumstances?

A: This is explained on our website: ‘Workshop’ -> ‘Workshop 2024’ -> ‘Refund Policy’

A: Yes, this is possible. Please contact Dr. Periasamy for details at the time the registration is made, so that we can adjust our hotel reservations.


Q: Are there scholarships available?

A; Yes, currently, we have 2 sources of fellowships available. Please, visit our website for details: ‘Workshop’ -> ‘Workshop 2024’ -> HCS Fellowship & BINA Fellowship.



Q: I am particularly interested in having hands-on training on a specific instrument mentioned in the program. Can this be accommodated?

A: Yes, this can be done within reason. All modern instruments have similar capabilities, and the core training objectives are met by any instrument. In addition, manufacturers’ representatives (Leica, Olympus, and Zeiss) are available at their instruments in the evening after the close of the official daily program, to work with participants; this also refers to the next question.


Q: Can I bring my own specimens to apply the imaging techniques taught at the workshop?

A: Basically, yes - after the official program ends, as explained in the previous question. For the smooth running of the workshop, specimens for training will be provided during the hands-son training period.


Q: I am coming to this workshop to learn how to overcome a particular challenge I have in my research objectives related to one of the imaging techniques taught at the workshop. Is there an opportunity to raise my questions?

A: Absolutely! Workshop teaching faculty, KCCI personnel and manufacturers’ representatives are available for formal (during the workshop day) or informal consultation at breaks and mealtimes. After dinner roundtable discussions offer another opportunity to ask questions or clarifications.
