ISCA 2008 Student Travel Grants for non-Chinese Students

The US National Science Foundation and ACM SIGARCH are providing a significant amount of funds to support travel grants for students to attend ISCA 2008. However, please note that there is a separate program (see below) for students within China. Funds can be requested to cover transportation and lodging costs (limited to travel and hotel from June 21-25). However, meals and symposium registration will not be funded. Student registration fee has been already greatly reduced, thanks to industry sponsors. Please note that ACM/IEEE membership is not required and we hope to fund a significant number of non-author students.

Applications must be received by May 10, and receipients will be notified by May 16. For authors of papers in workshops whose deadline is after May 10, an extension to May 19 is available, and receipients will be notified by May 23. Participants in any workshop with notifications too late to meet these deadlines should send in their application immediately after they are notified about the outcome of their paper.
