Opodis conference offers grants to allow students to freely attend the conference.
To be eligible, the applicant must be enrolled full time in a degree program at the time of OPODIS 2015. Authors of accepted papers and other students are all wellcome to apply. Participation, such as presenting a paper, will be used as a criterion in awarding the grants.
Please notice that students who are registering as authors for an accepted paper are eligible for a student grant, only if another author is attending and pays the full registration fee.
Questions about Student Grants should be directed to email@example.com with the following subject : [Student Grant] Questions.
To apply, submit by email a write-up not exceeding 500 words stating your student status and summarizing your current research related to distributed 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
If you have an accepted paper, what is the paper’s title?
What degree program are you in (BS/MS/MS+PhD/PhD)?
Who is your thesis advisor/supervisor?
Do you plan to attend the entire conference, including Tutorials Day on December 14th, or only the main conference on Dec 15th-17th?
Applications must be received no later than Nov 16th, 2015. Application submission is via e-mail, preferably as a pdf attachment, to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the following subject : [Student Grant Application] + applicant name. Award recipients will be notified on or around Nov 23rd.
If at all possible, students applying for a travel grant should wait to hear the decision before registering. Applicants that will not receive the student grant will be allowed to register at early period fees until the end of regular period.
