Student Travel Support

IEEE CSS Student Travel Support Program of CDC 2022

Program Details

The Organizing Committee of CDC 2022 is pleased to announce the Student Travel Support, made available by the IEEE Control Systems Society. These funds are meant to enhance the chances of promising students to attend CDC 2022, present their papers and become more integrated into the CSS scientific community. The limited amount of funds available are not reimbursed to the student awardees, but are applied by the conference organizers to (i) conference registration and (ii) partial lodging expenses. Please click here for more information.

Eligibility and Requirements

Each applicant:

  1. must be an author or co-author of a paper accepted for presentation at CDC 2022, and
  2. must present a paper. 

In order to be eligible for this program, an applicant must be a Student Member of both IEEE and CSS, at the time of the paper submission. 

Underrepresented minorities, women, and individuals with disabilities are highly encouraged to apply. 

In case the number of applicants exceeds the budget, additional criteria will be used to make a selection among the applicants. These additional criteria, in decreasing order of importance, prefer applicants who will present more than one paper at the conference, have been Student Members of the CSS since one, two, or more years, can demonstrate active participation in CSS. In addition, the selection committee may decide to limit awards where more than one presenter from the same institution would otherwise be offered an award to attend the same conference.  

Application Procedures

The application website opens on July 19 and closes on August 15. To apply, students must fill in the form here. The deadline for application has now passed and award decisions have been made.
