CIKM 2008 Student Travel Support

CIKM invites applications for small awards to help cover the cost of travel, subsistence, and registration to the CIKM 2008 conference for students.

Preference will be given to an applicant who is the principal author of a paper and will be presenting the paper at CIKM.

Principal authors of posters who are presenting their work may also receive funding if budget permits. Authors who are not presenting will not be funded.

Applicants still need to register for the conference on or before August 22 (23:59 EDT(GMT-5)) to receive the early-bird registration rate. No registration extensions will be granted to those submitting travel support applications.

It is likely that student travel support checks will be issued after the conference. As such, you should not depend on travel support to pay conference fees upfront.

It is assumed that applicants have only limited alternative travel support. Your advisor will be asked to confirm that your institution cannot provide significant levels of travel support.

The deadline for applying for student travel support is August 15, 2008. Decisions will be announced by September 10, 2008.

The application form is below. All fields must be completed. Return completed applications before August 15, 2008 to Ryen White by email (
Do not send HTML or DOC versions of the form; send an ASCII or plain text version only.
