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:
