We are pleased to announce the IMS Child Care Initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to encourage and support the participation at IMS Annual Meetings of IMS members having child care responsibilities.

The IMS will reimburse members 80% of the costs of privately arranged child care* at the IMS Annual Meeting, up to a maximum of US$250 per family. Priority will be given to those presenting papers or posters at the meeting. Not more than 40 grants may be awarded.
