Student Travel Support for 2011 PerCom Conference

The Ninth Annual IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing
and Communications is pleased to provide partial travel support for
students to attend 2011 PerCom conference and its co-located workshops.

National Science Foundation. Note that this funding is available only

eligible for student travel support, you, the student, must apply for
this support no later than January 28, 2011. To apply for this support,
please do the following:

1. Obtain a letter from your advisor/professor confirming that:
     a. You are currently a PhD student in good standing
