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], 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:
We also need a note from the student's advisor confirming that the student is a doctoral candidate in good standing.
