Eighth International Conference on Information and Communications Security (ICICS '06)

Student Travel Grants

ICICS 2006 would like encourage graduate student participation in the conference by subsizing the travel costs of individuals who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference.

Who Should Apply

Any graduate student in good standing, regardless of nationality, or any other criteria, except as noted, may apply. The decisions will be based as much as possible on both what the individual may get from the conference and may bring to the conference.

While any student may apply for this travel support, the selection process will give preference to ICICS 2006 paper authors who are graduate students without sufficient travel funding. The awardees cannot receive support from any other source for the expenses funded by this program.

How to Apply

Applications and supporting letters for a student travel grant should be emailed to the General Chair, Professor Douglas Reeves (reeves [at] ncsu.edu). The deadline is October 4, 2006 for student authors, and November 1, 2006 for other student participants.

An application should consist of a paragraph explaining the following:

  • the type of paper (if any) she or he will present at ICICS 2006,
  • the applicant's school,
  • statement about why attending ICICS 2006 would be useful for her or his research, and
  • statement about why the funding is needed (i.e., to document that research grant funding is not available / sufficient)

We also need a note from the student's advisor confirming that the student is a doctoral candidate in good standing.
