Travel Grants

Call for Applications

The Steering Committee of EuCNC’14 fosters a strong participation of students to the conference. To incentivize it, student grants will be assigned during the weeks of June before start of the event, based on a procedure that requires an application submitted by the student candidates.

 

Owing to the success of the conference in terms of number of participants who already registered as of June 1, the number of grants that will be assigned is relevant.

 

M.Sc. or Ph.D. (provided date of the final graduation in both cases is not foreseen before or on June 26, 2014) students enrolled in any University in Europe can submit their application via email, to Miss Giulia Gambineri, g.gambineri[at]unibo.it, with subject “EuCNC’14 – student grants”. The body of the email should contain name, family name, University and Country of the applicant; the email should include an attachment that will testify the status of student at the dates of the conference: either the scan of any document released by the University, or a short statement by a Professor of the University.

 

The grants will consist of a fee waiver for workshop (Monday 23rd) and full (Tuesday 24th, Wednesday 25th, Thursday 26th) registration (i.e. free‐of‐charge access to the full program of the conference including social events), plus a contribution to the expenses for travelling to and staying in Bologna up to 200 EUR. [1] [2]

 

A first batch of grants will be released on June 9th, based on applications received by Sunday, June 8th end-­of‐day. A second batch of grants will be released on June 16th, based on applications received by Sunday, June 15th end-of-­day. It is expected that at the first round, up to 40 grants will be assigned.

 

At each round of assignments, if the number of applications will be larger than the number of available grants, a random selection among all applications will be made.

 

 

[1] To fulfil National regulations, to take advantage of the contribution to the expenses, the student who is assigned a grant will be requested to sign a contract with CNIT, the National Inter-­University Consortium for Telecommunications, and will be asked to provide receipts of the expenses he/she is claiming (travel tickets, hotel invoices, etc.).

[2] Students of the University of Bologna are entitled to receive the fee waiver, not the contribution to travel expenses.
