Conference Travel Grants

The Conference Travel Grant (CTG) aims at providing partial financial support for participation in IEEE ComSoc conferences. The requirements for eligibility for the CTG are:

  • the candidate must be a ComSoc member, and
  • a conference participant, or
  • an author/researcher unable to obtain substantial sponsorships from his/her institution or other sources, and forced to cover most of all the associated expenses with own funds.

Priority will be given to:

  • Authors of the related Conference Papers
  • Presenters of accepted talks
  • Be from a country with a low Gross Domestic Product (GDP)

A committee of volunteers will be appointed to gather and evaluate requests for support, based on the following agreed rules:

  • The candidate will make a request for financial support by giving the reason for the trip and with detailed estimation of traveling costs and why he/she cannot obtain such funding. The candidate will indicate his/her financial shortcomings.

The candidate can submit his/her application through the EDAS system.

Documents to be provided:

  1. Link to short CV or professional website (URL)
  2. country of residence and country of birth
  3. ComSoc membership number (ComSoc membership is mandatory)
  4. accepted paper number (if any)

Any non-compliant request will not be considered.

Ranking of the candidates will be done in this order of descending priority:

  1. GDP of the country of residence/work
  2. distance of the country of residence/work from the conference venue
  3. paper/talk review evaluation

CTG will be paid as reimbursement after the conference and only if the goal of the request is achieved.

A recipient of CTG cannot accumulate any other ComSoc Grant for the specific conference.
