On a competitive basis, IEEE ICMLCN 2024 offers a number of grants to students or individuals who are financially limited. Eligible non-student applicants must be registered and co-author of an accepted peer-reviewed paper. Eligible student applicants must be registered and co-author of an accepted peer-reviewed paper, demo or student poster for the conference. The grants are possible through contributions from IEEE ComSoc, and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. These grants encourage participation by students or individuals who would normally find it difficult to attend. No more than one student or applicant per institution will be supported and they will receive only one possible grant (i.e. grant cumulation is not possible). These grants will enable sharing of scientific information and stimulating research interests for students and researchers in the field of communications and networking.

IEEE ICMLCN 2024 will provide three possible grants for application:


CONFERENCE TRAVEL GRANTS

Conference Travel Grants (CTG) is a newly established IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) program, which provides partial financial support for participation in IEEE ComSoc conferences.

Applicant Eligibility

To be eligible for a CTG at ICMLCN 2024, an applicant must be:

  1. An IEEE ComSoc member;
  2. An ICMLCN 2024 participant; and
  3. Unable to obtain sufficient substantial funding from your own institution or other sources, and forced to cover most of or all the associated expenses with your own funds.

How to apply for CTG?

An application for a grant should be submitted through EDAS at https://edas.info/G.php?g=785.

After you have logged into EDAS, select the “ICMLCN 2024 Conference Travel Grant” to submit the application. The application must include the following materials in a single PDF file:

  1. A statement that includes the reason for the trip and an estimate of the travel costs, attests that the applicant has not obtained any other funding for the trip, and explains the applicant’s financial need for the grant;
  2. Short CV (1-page);
  3. Country of residence and country of birth;
  4. ComSoc member number; and
  5. Accepted paper number (if any).

Non-compliant requests will not be considered.

Selection Process

A committee of volunteers will evaluate CTG applications. Applicants will be ranked in this order of decreasing priority:

  1. GDP per capita of the country of residence/work;
  2. Distance of the country of residence/work from the conference venue;
  3. Paper/talk review evaluation.

The CTG will be paid as reimbursement after the conference and only if the goal of the request is achieved. An official award letter will be provided for both the ComSoc CTG and STG with information on how the travel reimbursement is processed after the conference.

A recipient of a CTG may not receive any other ComSoc grants for the same conference.

Depending on the number of eligible candidates, each conference travel grant at IEEE ICMLCN 2024 will have a minimum value of US$500 and a maximum value of US$850.

IEEE COMSOC STUDENT GRANTS

IEEE ICMLCN 2024 offers a number of ComSoc grants to students who have co-authored an accepted peer-reviewed paper/demo/poster for the conference.  Each IEEE-sponsored grant is up to US$700 but no more than the actual travel expenses. 

Applicant Eligibility

To be eligible for a CTG at ICMLCN 2024, an applicant must be:

  1. Each applicant must be a Student Member or Graduate Student Member of the IEEE Communications Society at the time he/she applies for the grant;

  4. During the expense reimbursement stage, the student applicant must show the proof of having registered to attend ICMLCN 2024.

A student who is awarded a student grant must register, attend and present the paper at the conference. An active IEEE ComSoc membership will be verified. Payment will only be made to grant recipients who submit the expense report (with receipts for expenses over US$25) within 45 days after the conference. An official award letter will be provided for both the ComSoc CTG and STG with information on how the travel reimbursement is processed after the conference.
