ACM SIGMICRO and IEEE TCmARCH (among others) are providing funds to support travel grants for students to attend MICRO 2012. Funds can be requested to cover transportation and lodging costs (limited to travel and hotel from December 1st - 5th). However, meals and symposium registration will not be funded. (Registration costs are already greatly reduced thanks to MICRO Industry Support).
Applications are available in Word and PDF formats.
The grant application deadline is Monday, November 5th, 2012 and recipients will be notified on or about November 12th.
The size of grants may be limited due to budgetary constraints. In particular, there may be upper bounds on specific items, and we may set different upper bounds based upon the level of involvement (symposium speaker vs. workshop speaker vs. coauthor, for example). Reimbursement will occur after the conference, and is contingent upon the submission of original travel receipts and an acceptable 1-2 page description of what you thought was the most significant talk at the conference (and why). This report will not be read by a nameless bureaucrat, but rather by a member of the MICRO Steering Committee, who intends to present a summation of the opinions of the travel grant awardees at the next SIGMICRO/TCmARCH business meeting. In addition, students are encouraged to become members of either ACM or IEEE. Membership is not required in order to be reimbursed, but it is encouraged.
Applications must be received by the deadline - applicants are encouraged to submit via email. To apply for a grant, email a completed application form to:
