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.
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 any student may apply for this travel support, the selection
process will give preference to ACM CCS 2006 paper authors who are
graduate students without sufficient travel funding.
Awardees may not simultaneously draw on other sources of ACM funding
for their travel or conference expenses.
How to Apply
Applications and supporting letters for a student travel grant should
be emailed to the General Chair, Ari Juels
ajuels [at] rsasecurity.com),
as soon as possible, but no later than October 6, 2006 at 12 noon
Eastern (17.00 UTC). Award announcement will be made around October 13, 2006.
An application should consist of a paragraph stating why attending ACM
CCS 2006 would be useful for his or her research.
This paragraph should include:
- the type of paper (if any) she or he will present at ACM CCS
2006, research or industry track
- the applicant's school
We also need a note from the student's advisor confirming that the
