IEEE Student Travel Grant

Application Deadline: February 20, 2015

The Thirteenth IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (IEEE PerCom 2015) is pleased to announce travel grants for students to attend the conference and co-located events (Workshops, Ph.D. Forum, WiP, Poster, Demo sessions, etc.) to be held in St. Louis, Missouri on March 23-27, 2015. Funds for this travel support have been provided by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC) & Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP).

This funding is available only for full time students attending universities. Minority and women students from diverse institutions are particularly encouraged to apply. Although student authors will be given priority for travel awards, however, this is not a requirement. Post-doctoral students may also be considered for support on a case-by-case basis. To be eligible, students (henceforth referred to as “you”) must apply directly to Hurson at no later than February 20, 2015.

To apply for this travel support, please do the following:

  1. Obtain a letter from your advisor/professor confirming that:

    • You are currently a graduate (research) student in good standing, working in areas related to pervasive computing

    • You will be attending the entire PerCom conference

    • The remainder of your travel support will be covered (indicate how)

  2. Write a personal statement describing your research interests and how you wish to benefit from attending PerCom 2015, student status, and location you will be traveling from.

  3. Send the above documents, along with your two-page CV, to Dr. Hurson, General Co-chair.

Please note that the PerCom conference may not be able to reimburse you for all of your travel expenses due to limited budget. Eligible expenses for reimbursement include advance student registration, hotel, and travel (air, car, or train). Expenses that are not eligible for reimbursement include regular and/or on-site registration, meals, and local transportation (taxis, shuttles, parking, etc.). Student travel grants are available in the form of reimbursements that are sent only after the completion of the conference and receipt of all required documentation and receipts. Around 10 grants, each up to US$300 will be awarded. For any questions, please contact the IEEE PerCom 2015 General Co-Chair, Hurson, at
