Announcement of scholarships to participate in the 10th IEEE International eScience Conference
The organizing committee of the 10th IEEE International eScience Conference announces the availability of scholarships for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and young researchers to participate in the Conference. The goal of these scholarships is to expose young scientists to state-of-the-art multidisciplinary research involving Computer Science and other scientific domains. Given the nature of eScience research, candidates from all scientific domains, and from all countries, are welcome to apply. Candidates to receive financial support will be selected by the organizing committee, based on analysis of the documentation provided, as indicated in the Registration menu.
The following expenses will be covered:
- Transportation (primarily return air ticket to Sao Paulo Guarulhos airport, or Campinas Viracopos airport) – local ground transportation to and from the airport will be provided by the conference
- Conference registration fees
- Accommodation at hotels, directly reserved by the local conference organization (double or triple room occupancy, depending on hotel availability)
The following costs will not be covered
- Conference material (proceedings, etc)
- Travel insurance
- Health insurance
- Visa fees to Brazil
- Ground transportation to-from departure airport of country/city of origin
Transportation arrangements and travel period can only apply to the week of the conference, and cannot extend to before or beyond it.
The selected candidates are expected to attend the entire conference, and to participate in a special meeting during that week. These scholarships are intended to foster participation of graduate students and young researchers in IEEE eScience conference and workshops. They are not to be considered as scholarships to finance authors to present accepted papers at the conference or workshops. In other words, sole authors of accepted papers are not eligible. Co-authors are eligible only if they do not present a paper.
