Guidelines for sponsorship of symposia, postgraduate courses, or workshops by the International Society of Nephrology

The International Society of Nephrology (ISN) encourages the organizers of scientific symposia, postgraduate courses, or workshops to apply to the Society for sponsorship.

ISN sponsorship will provide:

  1. use of the Society's name as a sponsor or co-sponsor;
  2. announcement of the meeting in Kidney International, contingent upon the receipt of written information in the Editorial Office at least 6 months in advance of the meeting;
  3. the possibility of partial financial support.

Applications must include the following information:

  1. the topic, purpose, location and date(s) of the meeting;
  2. the names and titles of the members of the scientific organizing committee;
  3. a list of all co-sponsoring institutions, if any, and sources of financial support;
  4. the total revenue and expense budget for the proposed meeting, by major category;
  5. the names and institutions of origin of all invited speakers, and their topics;
  6. a statement as to whether manuscripts will be solicited from invited speakers, or free communications sought from others;
  7. an expression of willingness to include the following acknowledgment on all publications: " . . was held under the auspices of the International Society of Nephrology".

These guidelines do not apply to satellite symposia to be held in close proximity to a biennial Congress. Furthermore, the ISN will not sponsor or co-sponsor any regularly scheduled or routine international, national, or regional meeting, nor will it co-sponsor postgraduate courses with other international societies or groups.

Applications for sponsorship must be submitted directly to the ISN President.
