|Our minimum requirements reflect the make up of the majority of conventional scientific meetings.|
The youngest, least experienced individuals that regularly attend scientific meetings are undergraduate students that are nearing the completion of their degrees
- and that are currently undertaking research projects as a degree requirement or personal enrichment elective.
This too is our minimum educational requirement - to participate in a Mangosteen Meeting, we require proof that undergraduates are both enrolled in an undergraduate programme and have research experience at the time of their Meeting.
Undergraduates are though a small minority - most of the participants of international meetings either have or are working to obtain a Ph.D., or equivalent higher degree
- postdocs, industrial and governmental researchers, university
lecturers and professors and investigators of all kinds.
In this case, we will only request proof of an individual's academic qualifications and/or current employment status should they not be self-evident from journal publications or the respective company/institute websites and other freely available documentation.
As with all of Mangosteen's policies and programmes, we are flexible and willing to consider exceptions. If for whatever reason you cannot satisfy our minimum requirements but are passionate about attending a specific Meeting, please let us know. We will consider each request individually and will make a decision on your wish to participate based on the context of the
