Travel Grants for Students, Postdocs, and Junior Faculty from U.S. Institutions (NSF Grants)

These grants are funded by the NSF, awarded by an Infocom Committee and administered by the IEEE. They are available to Ph.D. students, postdocs and junior faculty at U.S. post-secondary institutions to defray travel costs for attending the conference. The majority of the NSF-funded awards will be given to students. Women and minority candidates are encouraged to apply. Applications are accepted from all U.S.-based students, including those on student visas (J-1 or F-1).

The application process will be carried out electronically. Applications differ slightly for faculty and postdocs than for students.

The application for a student should contain: 

  • A resume.

  • A cover letter, which should indicate how she/he would benefit from attending Infocom, which areas in the Infocom program would impact the student's research, and a brief summary of research interests and accomplishments.

  • The student's advisor should submit a letter of recommendation, confirming that the student is a Ph.D. candidate in good standing and commenting on the strengths and potential contributions of the student. The letter should indicate how the student would benefit from attending Infocom and the suitability of Infocom's technical program to the student's research area. The letter should also state the student's citizenship or visa status.

An application for a postdoc or junior faculty travel award should include:

  • A resume.

  • A cover letter summarizing research interests and publications, and a description of alternate funding sources. The letter should also explain how the Infocom program relates to the applicant's research interests and the unavailability of alternate funding sources.

Applications should be submitted via email to Reza Rejaie (reza@cs.uoregon.edu) with subject: "Infocom travel grant".

The deadline for applying for the NSF grant is December 31, 2003. Applicants will be notified with a decision by January 15, 2004, and will have to make a decision whether or not to accept the grant by January 23 2004. 

 IEEE Travel Grants (Communications Society Grants)

You may qualify for a Student Travel Grant or a Professional Travel Grant to defray some of your costs for attending Infocom 2004. 

The IEEE Communications Society will award a limited number of Student Travel Grants to full-time students who represent their accepted papers at Infocom 2004. Recipients of the grants must reside in a Major Region other than the one in which the conference is held (Infocom 2004 is held in Asia Pacific region, or IEEE Region 10). 

For more information and for the application forms, please visit the IEEE Communications Society's Web site. (Note that the site is currently being updated. Please use this form [DOC / PDF] until the ComSoc site is updated.)

The deadline for applying for the IEEE Communications Society Grant is three months before the conference starts, i.e. Dec. 6, 2003.
