Moreover, next week we will share an individualized e-mail per member organization including the 2017 membership fee invoice, as well as further information for registration to IPIC conference. ALICE would like IPIC to be THE conference for meet and exchange with other ALICE members. Therefore ALICE will support members participation in the best way possible. ALICE members that cannot cover IPIC participation fees through R&I projects may request a reduction in the IPIC registration fee subsidized by ALICE as follows: 1 coupon of 200 € reduction for ALICE members contributing with a fee of 1000€/year, 1 coupon of 350 € reduction for members contributing with a fee higher than 1000 €/year or 1 coupon for 1 day free attendance (IPIC Gala Dinner not included) for all members contributing with a fee of 1000 € or more.

Earlier this week we have shared a new release of the ALICE newsletter (link) including an update of main activities in the last 2 months. All members are subscribed to it, so you should have received by e-mail, but it might be the case your internet/e-mail security is not allowing proper reception.
