CIFEr 2012 Students Information


The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) Travel Grants Program offers a very limited number of travel grants to assist IEEE CIS student members and members from developing countries for presenting papers at IEEE CIS-sponsored conference. The applications must have both IEEE and IEEE CIS memberships. Past history of the IEEE CIS travel grants, as well as more information, can be viewed at the travel grants webpage.

To apply for the support one must first register in the Grant Application System. Submissions are to be entered into the Grant Application system. Paper and email applications will not be accepted.

Only complete applications from eligible student members and members will be accepted. Please, note that there is no need to send proof of IEEE and IEEE CIS membership as membership will be verified through the IEEE member databases.

The student applicants will be required to present proof of university attendance documentation at the conference (this is not a student card; please see the website for details).

Travel grant amounts have not been determined yet. See previous travel grant results for an indication of possible travel grant amounts.

The program favors researchers from developing countries submitting high quality papers.

Important dates: (the dates were extended due to technical difficulties in the IEEE Grant Application System)

  • Deadline: Feb 6th Feb 11th 2012

  • Review of applications: Feb 7th - Feb 15th Feb 12th - Feb 20th 2012 (tentative)

  • Notification of acceptance: Feb 16th Feb 22th 2012 (tentative)
