>> US National Science Foundation Travel Support
The US National Science Foundation has provided a travel fund to
partially support students and junior faculty working in US
universities to attend IROS2006.
Students and junior faculty who are studying or working in the
universities in the United States are eligible to apply for this
travel support. The authors or co-authors of papers accepted for
presentation at IROS2006, students, women, and
under-represented minorities, US citizens/permanent residents
have higher priority to get the support. The balanced
distribution of the awardees among different universities and
states will also be one of the factors in the selection process.
Awardees of the NSF travel support are required to travel by US
carries. If it is a code shared flight, the ticket must be
issued by a US carrier.
Eligible applicants may send their applications to Prof. Ning
Xi, firstname.lastname@example.org. The application should include the following:
(1) Name and contact information
(2) Current position
(3) Citizenship/visa status in US
(4) List of IROS2006 papers authored/presented by the applicant
(5) Participation of other activities related to IROS2006
The application should be received by September 25, 2006.
The awardees will be informed by October 1, 2006. The amount of
the support for each individual will depend on the total number
of final awardees.
