Travel Grants

The 26th IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols (ICNP 2018)
Cambridge, UK, September 24-27, 2018 

The purpose of the Travel Grant Program is to encourage junior researcher participation in the conference by partially funding the travel costs for those who would otherwise be unable to attend. Depending on fund availability, Ph.D. students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty members from underrepresented groups will be considered for travel support (although priority will be given to Ph.D. students). The program is made possible by several grants including from the US National Science Foundation (NSF). Dedicated travel funding is also made available specifically for P4EU Workshop attendees. In selecting applicants for travel support, preference will be given to those who satisfy one or more of the following criteria:

The factors above represent our rough prioritization. We also take into account extenuating circumstances that are discussed in statements and letters. Applicants are expected to show evidence of a serious interest in networking, as demonstrated by coursework and project experience. ICNP particularly encourages the participation of women and members of underrepresented minorities.

How to Apply

The following information should be submitted:

Applications that do not include the above items will not be considered. The expectation is that a student travel grant will significantly offset airfare, shared hotel accommodation, and registration. It may not fully cover these expenses, however, since our desire is to maximize participation by students.

Important Notes about Reimbursement

Funds can only be used toward registration, travel, sustenance and lodging at the conference hotel. In order to support as many students as possible, the amounts awarded will defray, but may not necessarily cover all costs. Students are strongly encouraged to secure additional funding from other sources. Funds will be disbursed only in the form of reimbursements for actual expenses. A receipt is required for any expense reimbursed (e.g., registration, airfare and hotel receipts).

NOTE: Students supported with NSF-provided funds MUST fly on a US carrier. We will let each awardee know if they will be supported by NSF funds.

For reimbursement, the student must submit the following information:

An application for this travel grant is an implicit acceptance of these terms.
