Student Travel Grants:

To apply for a travel grant:

  • Applicants must fill out the Travel Grant Application Form before the deadline, March 1, 2016.
  • Student applicants also need to ask their direct thesis advisor to send an e-mail to the Student Travel Award Chair ( with the subject line "ASPLOS Student Travel Status Confirmation for <Your Last Name, Your First Name>", stating that you are a full-time student pursuing an MS/Ph.D. or an undergraduate researcher in the areas covered by ASPLOS. The advisor is also welcome to comment on the potential broader impact of making an award to you, e.g., if you belong to an underrepresented group, or if the candidate is unable to attend without a substantial travel grant.
Additional notes for the process:
  • Please save all the original receipts. You need to mail them later.
  • Funds can be applied to transportation and lodging between April 1 and April 6, 2015.
  • The confirmation email from their advisors must be received by the same deadline. Your application is considered incomplete without it.
  • Due to the large number of applications we expect to receive, we will NOT solicit letters from your advisors. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure that your advisor sends the email before the deadline. No exception will be made for any reason.
  • DEADLINE: Travel grant application form must be received by 11:59pm, March 1, 2016.
  • We will do our best to notify you about the status of your application by March 8, 2016, which is before the conference early registration deadline. Note that award decisions will be made based on funding availability. Note also that some awards may be made only after the conference.
  • Depending on the source of funding, some awardees will be required to email the travel grant chair a short essay describing their ASPLOS experience or their favorite paper.
