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
http://bit.ly/mm-travel-grant . 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
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
