Student Travel grant for WUWNet11

Overview

WUWNet 2011 has received travel grants from National Science
Foundation (NSF), to support student authors to present

their work in the regular paper sessions, the Demo/Doctoral
Symposium and the work-in-progress poster and demo session
at 2011 ACM International Workshop on UnderWater Networks
(WUWNet'11) in Seattle, Washington, USA, December 1-2, 2011.

The goal is to broaden participation in the workshop by
supporting students with interests in underwater network
research who would otherwise be unable to attend.

The Call for Work-in-progress Posters and the Call for Demos

are at

http://wuwnet.acm.org/2011/posters.php

The extended abstract due dates are Oct. 14 (Fri), 2011

Please consider a submission.

The amount of support provided to each student will be up to

a maximum of $900 if they are not local (more than three
hours of driving distance from the workshop site) and up to
$600 otherwise. The support is intended to defray, but not
necessarily to cover entirely, the costs of attending the

workshop. The costs include workshop registration (at the
student rate), hotel, and transportation.

A total of about 15 ~ 20 students will be supported.

The award will be handled via reimbursements. Each

legitimate expense must be documented with an original
official receipt (e.g., air ticket and hotel receipt).
Further details of the reimbursement procedure will be
communicated to the award recipients.



Applications

When applying for the WUWNet 2011 travel grant, 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 "WUWNet11 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 Arabshahi.


Eligibility: students must be from U.S. based institutions.


Priority will be given to students who are authors of full
papers, short papers, demo/doctoral symposium papers, or
posters, and team members of the demos. Depending on the
funding, other student attendants will also be considered.
