ICNP 2022 Call for Travel Grant Applications

The purpose of the Travel Grant Program of ICNP is to encourage junior researcher participation in the conference by partially funding the travel costs for those who would otherwise be unable to attend. Depending on fund availability, Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers will be considered for travel support (although priority will be given to Ph.D. students). People from underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply. The program is made possible by several grants including that from the US National Science Foundation (NSF). In selecting applicants for travel support, preference will be given to those who satisfy one or more of the following criteria:

The factors above represent our rough prioritization. We also take into account extenuating circumstances that are discussed in statements and letters. Applicants are expected to show evidence of a serious interest in computer networking, as demonstrated by coursework and project experience. ICNP particularly encourages the participation of women and members of underrepresented minorities.

We plan to support each awardee up to $1500. However, the actual amount will depend on the applicant’s estimated expenses, our budget, and the number of applications.

Note that most grants will be given to applicants who plan to attend in person. Applicants who plan to attend remotely will be considered only based on availability of remaining funds.

How to Apply

The following information should be submitted:

Applications that do not include the above items will not be considered. The expectation is that a student travel grant will significantly offset airfare, shared hotel accommodation, and registration. It may not fully cover these expenses.

Submit your application by emailing:

The advisor’s letter can be sent either with other material by the applicant or separately by the advisor.

Important Notes about Reimbursement

Funds can only be used toward registration, travel, sustenance and lodging at the conference hotel. In order to support as many students as possible, the amounts awarded will defray, but may not necessarily cover all costs. Students and their advisors are strongly encouraged to secure additional funding from other sources. Funds will be disbursed only in the form of reimbursements for actual expenses. A receipt is required for any expense reimbursed (e.g., registration, airfare, and hotel receipts).

NOTE: Students supported with NSF-provided funds MUST fly on a US carrier. We will let each awardee know if they will be supported by NSF funds.

For reimbursement, the student must submit the following information:

An application for this travel grant is an implicit acceptance of these terms.
