Student Travel Grants

  • The exact number and amount of the awards will be determined based on the number of eligible applicants and the availability of funds.
  • Selection for awards and award amounts will consider on a number of factors, including but not limited to:

  • a) Whether the student has a paper or poster accepted in the program.
    b) Whether the student presents a paper or poster.
    c) Academic standing and research progress.
    d) Availability of other funding sources to support the student's travel.
    e) Hardships faced beyond typical graduate student challenges.
  • Some of funds may be restricted to a) students who have a membership at one of the following organizations, and b) students from US institutions.
  • Some travel funds may be available only to student members of ACM SIGARCH (Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture) or only to IEEE members. Any student from any country can become an ACM/IEEE member.
  • To be given higher priority we highly encourage all students to join SIGARCH and TCCA. SIGARCH offers an online membership for $2 and solicits blog posts from students reporting on their PACT conference experience and such posts may further improve priority. TCCA = IEEE Computer Society Technical Computing Group on Computer Architecture and offers free membership.
  • Any funds provided by the National Science Foundation must be used to support students from U.S. institutions traveling to PACT 2018.
  • Reimbursement will occur after the conference, and is contingent upon two things:

  • (a) The submission of all original receipts (transportation and accommodation). Please note that we must have the original receipts and not credit card receipts. Also, all travel grant awardees must fill out the travel expense claim form (which will be provided at a later time).
    (b) The submission of a 1-page report of your experience of PACT-2018, and what you thought was the most significant presentation and the paper at the conference.
