Student Travel Grant *

WUWNet 2011 has received travel grants from US National Science Foundation

(NSF), to support student authors to present their work in the regular paper
sessions, the Doctoral Symposium and the work-in-progress poster and
demo session. A total of about 15 ~ 20 students will be supported.

When applying, a graduate student needs to submit his/her vita, a short
personal statement, and a supporting email from the student's advisor.

The personal statement (half to one page) should include:

1.A brief summary of research interests and accomplishments to date;
2.A description of areas in the ACM WUWNet 2011 program that would impact
the student's research;
3.The paper/poster/demo that the student is an author on, if applicable.

In addition, the student's advisor should send an email to confirm that
the student is a bona fide Ph.D. or M.S. candidate in good standing.

Applications and the support letters should be emailed by the applicant

and the applicant's advisor, respectively, to [log in to unmask] with
subject line "WUWNet Student Travel Grant Application" or "WUWNet Student
Travel Grant Support Letter". ASCII format is strongly preferred, although

PDF format is acceptable.

The travel grant committee is headed by Prof. Shengli Zhou and Dr. Payman

Students must be from U.S. based institutions.

Priority will be given to students who are authors of regular papers, short

papers, or posters, and team members of the demos. Depending on the funding,
other student attendants will also be considered.
