IEEE CS TCPP & TCCC Travel Grant for non-US students
 

The Fifteenth IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (IEEE PerCom 2017) is pleased to announce travel grants for non-US based students to attend the conference and co-located events (Workshops, Ph.D. Forum, WiP, Poster, Demo sessions, etc.) to be held in Big Island, Hawaii on March 13-17, 2017. Funds for this travel support have been provided by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP) and Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC).

This funding is available only for full time students attending non US colleges and 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, non-US based students (henceforth referred to as “you”) must apply via EDAS.

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 (workshops, if appropriate).

    • 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 2017, student status, and location you will be traveling from.

  3. Upload the above documents, along with your two-page CV, on EDAS. After logging into EDAS, click the "Travel Grant" tab at your EDAS home page, and then select "IEEE CS TCPP & TCCC Student Travel Grant for PerCom 2017".

 

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. A few grants will be awarded, each between US$500 and US$1000 (depending on number of applications and costs). For any questions, please contact the IEEE PerCom 2017 General Co-Chair, Claudio Bettini, at claudio.bettini@unimi.it.
