  3. Scientific focus of and objectives of the proposed meeting, and its relationship with IAGA.
  4. Estimated number of participants, abstracts and sessions.
  5. Level of support requested (in US dollars) and how the money will be used.
  6. Additional information may be provided if appropriate, such as timeliness, the history of the meeting if it is one of a series, the expected number of national, regional and international participants, considerations given to the needs of young, disadvantaged, or under-represented scientists.
  7. Name and address of the person submitting the application and names and addresses of others on the Local Organising Committee.

Additionally, the meeting organisers are required to submit a short report within two weeks after the date of the meeting.
