Student Travel Grant

Deadline: Feb 10th, 2020

Notification: Feb 18th, 2020

Travel support will provide up to $800 per domestic student and up to $1,500 per international student to help cover the cost of the student's travel. Although student authors of HotMobile 2020 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, as well as students who have not previously attended HotMobile and do not have a presentation/poster/etc. We strongly encourage the participation from women, underrepresented minorities, persons with disabilities, or persons from developing countries. Some of the awardees will be selected to play visible roles in the organization and running of ACM HotMobile 2020, including registration desk duties and/or writing and publishing a workshop summary.

Applications for the travel award should be completed by filling out the google form here. If there are any questions, please contact the HotMobile 2020 Student Travel Grant Chair, Corey Baker at baker@cs.uky.edu by the deadline.

An application should consist of the following: 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 2020 (e.g., poster/demo presenter, paper presenter, etc.).
  3. A description of areas reflected in the HotMobile 2020 program that would impact the student's research.
