The  ACM  Multimedia conference is the main annual conference of ACM SIGMM.

It  provides a great opportunity for researchers to present their work, get

acquainted with the work of others, and discuss with colleagues both junior

and  senior.  To promote this form of cooperation, the SIG and its sponsors

make conference participation grants available for several students.

A scholarship is meant to support personal attendance of one student at the

main  conference  by paying the advance registration fee of up to $500* for

the  student (including main conference, workshop or tutorials). Individual

scholarships  may  cover  additional  expenses  subject  to  conditions  of

individual  sponsors. Students will have to make their own arrangements for

travel and accommodation.

All  students  can  apply, students being the primary author of an accepted

paper will be given preference in the selection process.

To  apply  for  a  scholarship,  a  faculty  member  of  the student's host

institution    must    fill    in    a    short    web    application    at . Students and faculty are encouraged to have

the application sent as soon as possible. The application must be submitted

no  later  than  August  10, 2010. Applications arriving after the deadline

will  not  be  considered.  The  notification  date  is  September 1, 2010.

Decisions made are final.

Please include the following information in an application:

   1. 	the  faculty's  full name and email address, student's full name and

      email address;

   2.	the name and nationality of the institution;

   3.	the student's academic status and expected year of graduation

   4. 	whether  the student is (co-)author of a paper that was accepted for

      the  main  conference or if the student contributes to any other part

      of the conference

   5. 	if  the  student is a (co-)author, the paper title, author list, the

      student's  contribution  to  the  paper, and whether the student will

      present the paper

   6. 	the  reason  for  applying  for  the  grant,  including the expected

      benefits  that  the students will have from attending the conference,

      research significance, and the funding status of the student

   7. 	a  brief  statement by the student about his or her current research

      interests  and research accomplishments to date, or a link to his/her
