The Student Travel Support of CDC/CCC 2009 is meant to enable promising students to attend the conference, present their papers and become more integrated into their scientific community. Funds from IEEE Control System Society (CSS) will be used to cover Student (or Regular, if needed) registration. Depending on the number of applications, modest levels of additional support, toward defraying costs of attendance and travel, might be possible.
Eligibility and Requirements
In order to be eligible, applicants
- must be an author or co-author of (at least) one paper accepted for presentation at CDC/CCC 2009;
- must present at least one of the accepted papers;
- must be a student member of both IEEE and CSS, at the time of the application.
Eligible Applicants may apply for the Student Travel Support program or for the Travel Support program for the Developing Countries, but NOT for both programs simultaneously.
To apply, students must download the Student Travel Support Application Form (click here to download), fill in ALL required data, convert it into the PDF format, and upload it through PaperPlaza as follows:
