We are planning to provide student travel support for students to defray a portion of their travel costs. The size and number of these grants will vary depending on funding availability, the number of student applicants, and their respective priority. Grant awards will be made before the early registration deadline. Expenses will be reimbursed after the conference, and grant recipients will be asked to submit original receipts to verify their expenditures.
While we encourage all in need of a travel grant to apply, the selection process will give higher priority to students with greater involvement in the conference (presenter, co-author) as well as students from under-represented groups. We strongly encourage applications from students that belong to under-represented groups. Also, certain funds may be available to ACM SIGMICRO student members and IEEE Computer Society members only.
Applicants must fill out the Travel Grant Application Form before the deadline, August 25, 2019.
Student applicants also need to ask their direct thesis advisor to send an e-mail to the Student Travel Award Chairs ([email protected]) with the subject line "MICRO 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 MICRO. 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.
Any questions can be sent to [email protected].
