ACM 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 how the individual may benefit from the conference and what the individual may bring to the conference. ACM WiSec travel grants will cover in part, the conference registration plus travel costs.
While any student may apply for this travel support, the selection process will give preference to authors of ACM WiSec 2014 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, Ivan Martinovic (ivan.martinovic (AT) cs.ox.ac.uk) and Andrew Martin (andrew.martin (AT) cs.ox.ac.uk) between June 1st and June 15th, 2014. Applications submitted outside of the submission period are not guaranteed to be considered.
Student travel grant applications should include the following:
- A paragraph stating why attending ACM WiSec 2014 would be useful for the student's research.
- The title of the paper, poster, or demo (if any) to be presented at ACM WiSec 2014.
- The applicant's institution.
- A signed supporting letter from the student's advisor confirming that the applicant is a doctoral candidate in good standing.
