ICDM 2015 Student Travel Grants

ICDM 2015 is able to offer travel grants to full-time students. The purpose of the student travel grants is to encourage graduate student participation at the conference by partially funding the costs of students who would otherwise be unable to attend.

Applications are accepted from full-time students at degree granting institutions. The maximum amount and type of support provided to each grantee are set by the committee, and they are intended to partially cover the grantee's lodging and registration. Travel may or may not be partially covered depending on the total availability of funds and the number of awards given.

All full-time students are encouraged to apply. Other criteria will include evidence of a serious interest in data mining research, as demonstrated by coursework and project experience. ICDM encourages participation of women and under-represented minorities, as well as participation of students from under-represented institutions.

Information is provided below on eligibility and application requirements for these grants. The required documentation should be submitted as a single document, no later than midnight US PST, September 25, 2015, at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icdmsta2015 in PDF format. Late submissions or documents in other formats will not be accepted.
