SIGIR 2013 Student Travel Support
SIGIR Student Travel Grants
The ACM Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval (ACM SIGIR) invites applications for small grants to help cover the cost of travel, living expenses, and registration to the SIGIR 2013 conference.
Preference will be given, in this order, to:
- Applicants who are the principal author of a paper and will be presenting the paper at SIGIR.
- Applicants who are attending the doctoral consortium.
- Applicants who are the principal author of a short paper or demo and will be presenting the short paper or demo at SIGIR.
Preference will also be given to applicants that have only limited alternative travel support; and to applicants who are full-time students at the time of the conference. Non-students may also apply if they are able to demonstrate that they have limited financial capacity to attend the conference. If you are a student, your advisor may be asked to confirm the level of support that you indicate on your submitted application.
Donald B. Crouch Travel Grants
In 2013, as a result of a donation made by the Singhal Family Charitable Fund, additional funding is available for support of students living and studying in developing countries. Students wishing to apply for a Donald B. Crouch Travel Grant should complete the section of the application form requesting information about their educational background.
Google Travel Grants
For SIGIR 2013, Google is sponsoring travel grants specifically for women. If you wish to be considered for this award, please answer the application question concerning your gender.
The deadline for applying for both forms of travel support is May 24th. Decisions will be communicated on or before May 31st. Note that early-bird registration for the conference closes on June 14; students granted SIGIR travel support will be expected to register using this rate.
To apply, complete the online application form by May 24th. All applications will be acknowledged. If you do not get a reply email within a few days of completing your application, please contact Ian Soboroff (isoboroff [ at ] gmail.com). Only applications that have been acknowledged will be considered for funding.
If you have questions, contact Ian Soboroff using the email address above.
