HPCA 2018 is now offering travel support to encourage student participation at the conference through the generous support of IEEE TCCA and others. The conference will be held February 24 - 28 in Vienna, Austria. All students are eligible to apply. (Students enrolled at US institutions are also eligible to apply for NSF-funded student travel grants.)
Selection of applicants for funding and the degree of funding will be dependent on several factors. Priority will be granted to:
Please note that students do not necessarily have to be presenting work to receive a travel grant. Additionally, funding is not guaranteed and requires attendance at HPCA.
Students may apply for funds covering conference registration, airfare, ground transportation, lodging, and meals. However, the source of the funds granted to a student may restrict how the funds may be used. In order to be reimbursed, the student will have to present original receipts and fill out a travel expense claim form (which will be provided at a later time).
The deadline for submitting travel funding applications is January 5, 2018. Please send them by email to the Student Travel Grant Co-Chair, Professor Kelly Shaw (kshaw at richmond dot edu). Use the subject line "HPCA 2018 Student Travel Grant Application."
The travel grant application must include:
Additional funds may be requested to help offset the costs for a companion care-provider. Specifically, students with physical disabilities necessitating a companion or students who are parents of an infant less than two years old who cannot travel without the infant and a care-provider for the infant may request additional funds in their applications.
Students who are currently enrolled in U.S. universities are eligible to apply for financial support from our NSF grant to travel to and attend the CGO/HPCA/PPoPP 2018 symposia to be held February 24 - 28 in Vienna, Austria. You do not need to be a U.S. citizen to apply.
Each symposium will select students from its eligible applicants to receive travel support. Selection will be based on need and the degree of participation. Committee members and presenters of papers or posters will have priority. Since the total grant is a fixed amount, the amount that can be awarded to each student will depend on the number of awardees, and will cover only a portion of your expenses.
Reimbursable expenses include airfare, ground transportation, lodging, symposium registration fees, and meals and incidentals (subject to a maximum per diem amount).
If you are awarded and currently attend any California State University campus, a portion of your award will be used for international travel insurance, which CSU will purchase for you. You will receive a copy of the policy. (In the past, the cost has been under $100 per student.) If you are not a CSU student and want travel insurance, you should purchase it on your own.
After the conclusion of the symposia, each awarded student must complete and return a Travel Expense Claim (TEC) form and include original receipts. This form will be provided later to you. You must also provide a one-page report on your impressions of the symposium that you attended. A summary of your impressions will be provided to the NSF.
