AIRS offers small grants to students presenting at the conference to help cover the cost of travel, lodging and registration. To be elegible for travel support, students must be authors of full, short or demo papers and presenters of the work at the conference. Application from students that have not authored a contribution in AIRS 2015 will be considered, but will be ranked lowest across among all applicants and may thus be unsuccessful in obtaining sponsorship.
In most cases, the travel grants will only cover a portion of the travel expenses. Our goal is to maximize the number of students we can help. If the demand exceeds the available budget, we will prioritize applicants who are full-time students at the time of the conference and those from low-income countries. These grants are given in the form of reimbursement, so students will need to plan to cover their costs upfront.
Students who receive travel grants are expected to register using the “early-bird” or “regular” conference registration rates and to travel and lodge as economically as possible.
Applications will be selected according to the following criteria.
