In addition to reduced student registration fees, ASPLOS will offer travel grants for students to attend the conference. We will also offer travel grants to junior faculty members from underrepresented minorities and faculty members from non-research universities. The size and number of these grants will vary depending on funding availability. Expenses will be reimbursed after the conference. Grant recipients will be asked to submit original receipts.
While we encourage all in need of a travel grant to apply, priority will be given to paper and poster presenters, co-authors, and underrepresented minorities (including women and undergraduate students interested in research). To apply, please follow the following steps:
- Complete this application form
- Applicants, compose an email to asplos2010travel at gmail dot com. For your subject line, please use “Travel Grant Application for <Your-Last-Name, Your-First-Name>”.
- In the body of your email, please briefly describe your reasons for attending ASPLOS and your research interests.
- Attach a current resume and the completed application form.
Student applicants also need to ask their advisor to send an e-mail to asplos2010travel at gmail dot com with the subject line “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 undergraduate research in the areas covered by ASPLOS.
Travel grant applications must be received by February 5th. For students, the confirmation email from their advisor needs to be received by that date also. Because of the large number of applications we expect to receive, we will not solicit these letters from your advisors - it is your responsibility to ensure that your advisor sends the email before the deadline.
We will acknowledge receipt of your application within a week of receipt. If you do not receive such an acknowledgement, please resend. If you still don't receive an acknowledge mail, please call the Travel Chair, Sangyeun Cho, at +1 (412) 383-7018.
We will do our best to notify you about the status of your application by February 9th, which is 3 days 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.
Please contact Sangyeun Cho (Pitt) for information.
