Student Travel Grant

The 41st IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks is soliciting applications for travel grants to partially offset the cost of students planning to attend DSN-2011 in Hong Kong, China, June 27 – 30, 2011

To be eligible, the applicant must be enrolled in a degree program at the time of DSN-2011. Authors of accepted research papers and fast abstracts, students submitting papers to the Student Forum, and other students are all welcome to apply. Participation, such as presenting a regular paper or a paper in the Student Forum, will be used as one criterion in awarding the scholarships.

We anticipate awarding grants with a value roughly between USD$500 and USD$1,000 per student (amount non-binding, estimated from previous years), thanks primarily to the support of our industrial sponsors, IEEE, and IFIP. Some of the grant amount may take the form of a waived registration fee. We expect to award approximately 15 or more grants, depending on industrial donations.

Questions or comments about Student Travel Grants should be directed to DSN Student Travel Grant Committee at student_travel_grant2011@dsn.org.


Student Travel Grant Application Submission

To apply, submit by email a write-up not exceeding 500 words stating your student status and summarizing your current research related to dependable computing, what you hope to learn by attending the conference, and how you expect it to affect your future research directions. Ability to summarize is a quality of a good researcher, therefore too long a statement will be to the applicant's disadvantage.

Also include, at the front of your submission, in this order:

  • Your name, postal address, electronic mail address, and telephone number
  • To which DSN component, if any, did you submit a contribution (PDS, DCCS, which workshop, poster, student forum, fast abstracts)?
  • What is your paper title?
  • Was your paper accepted (if known)?
  • What degree program are you in (BS/MS/MS+PhD/PhD)?
  • Who is your thesis advisor/supervisor?

Applications must be received no later than April 22, 2011. Application submission is via e-mail, preferably as a pdf attachment, to the following address: student_travel_grant2011@dsn.org. All submissions will be confirmed via return e-mail. If you do not receive a confirmation within 48 hours of sending the e-mail please contact the Student Forum Chair by email.
