HotMobile 2016 is pleased to provide travel support to selected students from universities in the U.S., to broaden the participation in our workshop. This support is made possible by the generous support from National Science Foundation (NSF). Following the NSF supporting guideline, students in U.S. universities are only eligible to apply for the travel support.
Travel support will provide up to $700 per student to help cover the cost of the student's travel, lodging, meals, and workshop registration fees. Although student authors of HotMobile 2016 papers will be given priority for travel awards, we will seriously consider applications from presenters of posters and demos. Note that preference is also given to students who apply before January 29th, 2016 (Hard Deadline). We also strongly encourage the participation from women, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities. Some of the applicants will be selected to play visible roles in the organization and running of ACM HotMobile 2016, including registration desk duties and/or writing and publishing a workshop summary in ACM MC2R.
Applications for the travel award should be sent electronically as a PDF attachment to the HotMobile 2016 Student Grants and Volunteer Chair, Taiwoo Park at twp[at]msu.edu by Jan 29th, 2016 (Hard deadline). The subject line of the email should be: HotMobile 2016 Travel Grant Application. Please make sure that you receive an electronic confirmation of your submission. An application should consist of the student's CV, a short personal statement (maximum one page), and a supporting letter from the student's advisor.
The student's short personal statement should include:

Applications will be reviewed by the HotMobile Travel Awards Committee, and the awards will be announced prior to the workshop. Please note that the reimbursement amount will be subject to change based on the number of awardees and it is expected to be at maximum of $700 per student. Eligible expenses for reimbursement include advance student registration, hotel, and air travel. 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 after the completion of the conference and receipt of all required documentation and receipts.
