Answer

Funding for the FOE symposia is provided by foundation, government, and corporate sponsors. These currently include The Grainger Foundation in Lake Forest, Illinois, National Science Foundation, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Department of Defense Research and Engineering – Research Directorate, and companies such as Microsoft Research, Qualcomm and Cummins Inc., as well as corporate and federal lab hosts. Because of this financial support, there is no meeting registration fee, and travel stipends are available to those who need them.
