Student Travel Grants

With generous support from U.S. National Science Foundation, IEEE TC on Computer Architecture, and some industry sponsors, HPCA 2013 will offer travel grants for students to attend the conference. The NSF funds will enable us to provide travel grants for US citizens or residents. The professional society funds and industry funds are available for students all over the world. Also, certain funds will be available to IEEE members only. We highly encourage students to join IEEE TCCA to be given higher priority. The exact number and amount of the awards will be determined based on the number of eligible applicants and the availability of funds.

IMPORTANT: Travel grant applicants who must obtain a travel grant to attend the conference should not register for the conference until hearing the decision on their application. Students who have applied for a travel grant by January 15, 2013 will be able to register at the early registration cost.
