Student Travel Grants

The organizers of the DSN conference announce the availability of student travel grants to partially offset the cost of students planning to attend DSN-2018 in Luxembourg, June 25 – June 28, 2018.

We anticipate awarding grants (possibly as full or partial student registration waivers) thanks to the generous support of IEEE and IFIP organizing the conference series, as well as our generous company sponsors.

To be eligible, the applicant must be enrolled in a degree program at the time of DSN-2018. The student authors of accepted papers in any of the conference tracks are especially welcome to apply. Level of participation, such as authoring a regular main track paper, will be used as a priority criterion in awarding the grants.

To apply, include, at the front of your submission, in this order:

  • Your name, university name, and preferred contact e-mail address
  • Your postal address, and telephone number
  • Your paper category (regular, practical experience report, student forum, etc.)
  • Your paper title
  • Your current student status and degree program that you are in (BS / MS / MS+PhD / PhD)
  • Your thesis advisor’s/supervisor’s name

Then, continue with a write-up not exceeding 100 words stating your student status and summarizing your current research related to dependable and secure 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.

Application submission is via e-mail, preferably as a PDF attachment, to the following address:

Applications must be received no later than April 30, 2018. Notification will be sent by May 14, 2018.

NOTE: Please pay attention to the notification deadline of the Supplemental Volume products, which is April 22, 2018.
