This year, SIGMM and SISCA will be offering a number of student travel grants. SISCA will be offering sponsorship for students at SICSA institutions, whereas SIGMM will be offering sponsorship for all students.
SIGMM will be offering a number of student travel grants in order to assist your journey to Glasgow, Scotland. The travel grant is meant to support travel and accommodation expenses of one student at the main conference. Students will have to make their own arrangements for travel and accommodation. The exact amount will depend on the number of accepted travel grants.
- Students being the primary authors of an accepted paper in the main conference or workshops will be given preference in the selection process.
- Students selected to attend the Doctoral Symposium and Open Source Software Competition will be given high priority.
- Students without papers accepted for publication at ACMMM 2013, but involved in research closely related to the topics of ACMMM will be considered.
- Female and minority students’ applications are especially encouraged.
More information regarding the application process and deadlines will be coming soon.
SISCA will be offering sponsorship covering the cost of conference registration for 10 Scotland-based students. More information regarding the application process and deadlines will be coming soon.
