HotMobile 2013 is pleased to provide travel support to selected graduate students to broaden the participation in our workshop. Travel support will provide up to $700 per student to help cover the cost of the student's travel, lodging, meals, and workshop registration fees. We encourage the participation from women, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities. Some of the applicants will be selected to play visible roles in the organization and running of ACM HotMobile 2013, including writing and publishing a workshop summary in ACM MC2R and/or registration desk duties. Travel support is made possible by a grant from SigMobile.

Applications for the travel award should be sent electronically as a PDF attachment to the HotMobile 2013 Travel Award Committee (<><>) by Dec 31st, 2012. Please make sure that you receive an electronic confirmation of your submission. An application should consist of the student's CV, a letter from the student, and letter from the student's advisor.

The letter from the student should include:

   1. A brief summary of research interests and accomplishments to date.
   2. A description of areas reflected in the HoMobile 2013 program that would impact the student's research.
   3. A note on how assuming any additional roles at HotMobile 2013 would impact the student.

In addition, the student's advisor should send a letter of recommendation to the committee. It should include:

   1. Confirmation that the student is a Ph.D. candidate in good standing.
   2. The suitability of HotMobile 2013 program to the student's research area.
   3. Ways in which attending the workshop would benefit the particular student.
   4. The strengths and potential contributions of the student.
   5. The financial needs of the student in traveling to HotMobile 2013.

Applications will be reviewed by the HotMobile Travel Awards Committee, and the awards will be announced prior to the workshop. Alternates will be notified in the event that a recipient declines. Late registration fees will be waved for travel grant awardees.
