Travel Support Grants

ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (ACM CCS) would like encourage graduate student participation in the conference by subsizing the travel costs of individuals who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference.

Application due: September 15, 2004

Who should apply

Any graduate student in good standing, regardless of nationality, or any other criteria, except as noted, may apply. The decisions will be based as much as possible on both what the individual may get from the conference and may bring to the conference. ACM CCS will cover student registration costs and subsidize travel costs. The total subsidy will be approximately $300-$400. There will be up to seven (7) awardees.

While anyone may apply for this travel support, the selection process will give preference to ACM CCS 2004 paper authors who are graduate students without sufficient travel funding. The awardees cannot receive support from any other source for the expenses funded by this program.

How to apply

Applications and supporting letters for a student travel grant should be emailed to Trent Jaeger at, as soon as possible, but no later than September 15, 2004. Award announcement will be made around October 1, 2004.

An application is a paragraph stating why attending ACM CCS 2004 would be useful for his or her research.

This paragraph should include: We also need a note from the student's advisor, indicating why the advisor believes the student would benefit from attending ACM CCS 2004 and confirming that the student is a doctoral candidate in good standing.

Please contact Trent Jaeger ( for any further information.
