IEEE DySPAN 2011: Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks Student Travel Grant Opportunities

We are pleased to announce the availability of student travel grants for IEEE DySPAN 2011. There are several sponsors with slightly different requirements, with some sponsorship still pending. To ease the burden on applicants, we have unified the application process. We will assign applicants to grants from particular sponsors and will notify the applicant if any additional information is needed.

Application Procedure

An application for a student travel award will consist of:

1. A letter from the student, including paper title if a paper or poster has been accepted for IEEE DySPAN 2011. See further details below.

2. The student's vita.

3. An estimate of the following costs of attending IEEE DySPAN 2011: airfare, hotel, and conference registration. It is anticipated that travel grants will partially cover these costs of attendance.

4. A supporting letter from the student's graduate advisor. See further details below.

The letter from the student should include (at most 1 page):

1. A brief summary of research interests and accomplishments to date, including the title of any paper, demonstration or poster accepted for presentation at IEEE DySPAN 2011.

2. A description of areas reflected in the IEEE DySPAN 2011 program that would impact the student's research, and 

3. A statement about why the conference attendance is important to the student.

The advisor's recommendation letter for the student should include:

1. Confirmation that the student is a bona fide Ph.D. or M.S. candidate in good academic standing at the given institution, 

2. Ways this particular student would benefit from attendance at the conference, and

3. The strengths and potential contributions of the student.

Applicants should upload their applications through EDAS, by following this link . Applicants should create a single PDF file containing items 1-3 of the application package (the student's letter, the student's vita, and an estimate of cost). EDAS will request the advisor's recommendation letter from the advisor directly. (The student will be asked to identify the advisor by the EDAS system.)
