The International Advisory Committee (IAC) of the ITC has decided to offer a number of travel grants that will be available to support full-time students for attending ITC 29. The amount of each grant is EUR 600 that can be used to cover student travel expenses related to attending ITC 29 conference, such as student registration fee, airline ticket, and hotel accommodation expenses.
The registration is open from June 5, 2017 until June 23, 2017. All applications registered before June 5, 2017 will be removed.
The application from the student should state why he/she wants to attend ITC 29 and how would he/she benefit from ITC 29. This description should be kept to a page maximum and uploaded through EDAS.
The advisor of the student must also submit an advisor’s recommendation stating that ITC 29 covers the applicant's research areas, details whether the student is a PhD candidate, and outlines how the student out stands among other students. Upon application from the student, the advisor will receive an invitation from EDAS to submit the recommendation.
It is important that both the student and advisor motivate the application with regards to the technical objectives of ITC and the research work of the applicant.
If selected, the Student commits to send within two weeks after ITC 29 a two-page report highlighting the benefits of having attended ITC 29, in terms of impact on his/her own research, of overall technical knowledge increase, and on technical exchanges and potential collaboration with other attendees.
