Student Travel Grant

Deadline: Jan 15th, 2018

Notification: Jan 17th, 2018

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 2018 papers who are also presenting posters will be given priority for travel awards, we will seriously consider applications from presenters of solely posters and demos. 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 2018, 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 2018 Student Travel Grant Chair, Kyungmin Lee at kyungmin[at]fb.com by Jan 15th, 2018 (Hard deadline). The subject line of the email should be: HotMobile 2018 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:

  1. A brief summary of research interests and accomplishments to date.
  2. Type of participation at HotMobile 2018 (e.g., poster/demo presenter, paper presenter, etc.).
  3. A description of areas reflected in the HotMobile 2018 program that would impact the student's research.
  4. Importance of attending the conference to the student's research activities.

In addition, the student's advisor should send a letter of recommendation to the committee. It should include:

  1. Confirmation that the student is a Ph.D. candidate in good standing.
  2. The suitability of HotMobile 2018 program to the student's research area.
  3. Ways in which attending the workshop would benefit the particular student.
  4. The strengths and potential contributions of the student.
  5. The financial needs of the student in traveling to HotMobile 2018.

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.
