Joint World Congress News: Generous anonymous donation allowing a discount for 2 delegates from developing countries

A kind and generous donation has been made to the Joint World Congress, to provide a discount of $250 in registration fees to 2 delegates from developing countries. We hope that this wonderful opportunity will enable 2 more people from developing countries to attend our World Congress, and thereby increase the scope and future benefits of this event.

This discount is available exclusively to people who stutter (PWS) or people who clutter (PWC).

Applications will be accepted by email during the time period of 27 to 29 April, (inclusive). To apply, please send an email (in English) to with details including your name, where you live, what you hope to learn from the conference, and what you intend to take back to benefit your community. Additionally, please attach a copy of the main page of your passport. Only people who send this information will be eligible.

The World Congress organizers will select the successful applicants after the closing date, at random. The 2 successful applicants will be sent a code that can then be used during the registration process to enable the $250 discount.
For a list of eligible developing countries, please refer to Table C in this document, or the attached picture:

To be eligible for the discount, applicants must be living in their country, and not only holding a passport of that country.

We are looking forward to hearing from you, between 27 and 29 April, and to welcoming the lucky benficiaries of this fabulous opportunity to the Joint World Congress.

The One World Many Voices Congress Organizing Team have recently found out that there is some confusion about what is happening on the first day of the World Congress this July. To clarify, the Congress is four full days of programming. The first keynote presentation will take place on the morning of Friday 13th July and the final oral presentations will take place on the afternoon of Monday 16th July.

We have been overwhelmed by the wonderful quantity and quality of submissions, which is why we've been able to prepare a jam packed program for delegates.

We are hoping to announce the presentation program in the next week or so and think that everyone will be very excited to see the variety of presentations on offer in Hiroshima this summer. Book your place so you don't miss out!
