The 29th Int’l Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS 2009)

June 22-26, 2009     Montreal, Quebec, Canada


Travel Grant Information

ICDCS would like to encourage graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and junior faculty to participate in ICDCS and its affiliated workshops by funding the registration costs of individuals who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference. We especially encourage those who do not have a paper in the conference, but wish to attend, to submit a travel grant application. No more than one author per conference paper will be given an award. We expect to fund approximately 30 travel grants, ranging from $400 to $725 each. Larger awards may be given depending on availability of funds.

Grants are supported by generous contributions from IBM and the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Distributed Processing (TCDP). We anticipate travel grants will also be available funded by the National Science Foundation.

Eligibility Requirements

Any graduate student, junior faculty member or a postdoctoral researcher may apply.
