Student Support Program
IEEE CSS Student Travel Support Program of CDC 2013

Program Details

The Student Travel Support of CDC 2013 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) and National Science Foundation of U.S. (NSF) will be used to cover student (or regular, in rare cases) registration. Depending on the number of applications, partial reimbursement of travel expenses and/or conference-rate hotel nights might be available.


Eligibility and Requirements

In order to be eligible for either program, an applicant must
  • be an author or co-author of (at least) one paper accepted for presentation at CDC 2013;
  • present at least one of the accepted papers;
  • be a student member of both IEEE and CSS, at the time of the application. While all student members of IEEE-CSS are eligible for the CSS funds, funds from NSF are limited to students studying at an institution within the U.S.
In case the number of applicants exceeds the budget, additional criteria will be used to make a selection among the applicants. These additional criteria, in decreasing order of importance, prefer applicants who
  • have not benefited from this scheme in the last two years.
  • will present more than one paper at the conference.
  • can demonstrate active participation in CSS.
In addition, the selection committee may decide to limit awards where more than one presenter from the same institution would otherwise be offered an award to attend the same conference.


Application Procedures

To apply, students must download the Student Travel Support Application Form, fill it in, convert it into the PDF format, and upload it through PaperPlaza as follows:
Step 1: Select Submit a paper or session proposal for the CDC 2013
Step 2: Select First Submissions: Student Travel Form
Step 3: To complete the application procedure, the Student's Advisor must contact via e-mail Professor Sandra Hirche, Chair of Student Activities Committee of the IEEE Control Systems Society (s.hirche@ieee.org), and provide her with the following information:
  1. Certification that the applicant is currently enrolled as a student and is planning to attend and present a paper at the CDC 2013.
  2. Short message of support of the Student's application.
