ESWEEK Student Travel Grant

ESWEEK 2019 is happy to announce the ACM SIGBED, IEEE CEDA, and NSF ESWEEK Opportunity Programs dedicated to supporting student participation at the event.

The Programs offer travel support to a limited number of students. Preference will be given to students being an author or co-author of a paper accepted at one of the conferences of ESWEEK 2019, and be in need for financial support. For an ACM or IEEE travel grant, the student has to be member of either ACM SIGBED (link) or of IEEE CEDA (link). To be eligible for an NSF grant, the student must be a US student (enrolled at a US university or a US citizen/permanent resident) and not already supported by NSF funds.

In case of over-subscription, highest priority will be given to under-represented groups and students from institutions or countries that cannot afford the travel. Students with successful applications will be reimbursed for their expenses (or part of them) after the conference.

Applications should be sent to Juergen Teich via email (juergen[dot]teich[at]fau[dot]de) with subject "ESWEEK Travel Grant Application".
