The Student Travel Support of CDC-ECC 2011 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, 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
Each applicant (i) must be an author or co-author of a paper accepted for presentation at CDC-ECC 2011,
(ii) must register at the conference, and (iii) must present a paper.
In order to be eligible for either program, an applicant must 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.
