The ACM Conference on Wireless Network Security (WiSec) would like to encourage graduate student participation in the conference by subsidizing 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 below, may apply. 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 WiSec travel grants will include conference registration plus travel costs up to 150 EUR.
While any student may apply for this travel support, the selection process will give preference to authors of ACM WiSec 2011 papers or posters 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 Chairs, Dieter Gollmann (diego(AT)tu-harburg.de) and Dirk Westhoff (Westhoff(AT)informatik.haw-hamburg.de) between 15 March and 31 March, 2011. Applications submitted outside of the submission period are not guaranteed to be considered.
Applicants should state in a paragraph why attending ACM WiSec 2011 would be useful for their research. This paragraph should include (1) the type of paper (if any) to be presented at ACM WiSec 2011, and (2) the applicant's school. We also require a supporting letter from the student's advisor confirming that the applicant is a doctoral candidate in good standing.
