EDIC Conference Travel Grants

Applicable fellowship students who are not affiliated to a lab in their first-year.

If you are an EDIC fellowship student and have a paper accepted at an international conference, then you can ask for an EDIC travel grant to help you cover your costs. Decisions will be taken on a case by case basis.

The following are the necessary conditions:

  1. The conference is international, has a good reputation, the paper will be published in proceedings, and the paper is indexed (such as Xplore for IEEE publications).
  2. The paper results from work done BEFORE the enrollment at EPFL and is strictly with collaborators outside EPFL.
  3. You list your affiliation on the paper as “School of Computer and Communication Sciences, EPFL”.

If these conditions are fulfilled, please send the following information together with your request for a travel grant to [email protected]:

  1. A PDF of your paper.
  2. A link to the conference web page.
  3. A paragraph explaining when and where this work was done and why you want to go to this conference.

Should you be awarded a travel grant, it will typically cover 50% of registration, travel, hotel, and food, up to a maximum cost of CHF 1,500.- (maximum CHF 750.-) for conferences outside Europe and maximum up to CHF 1000.- (maximum CHF 500.-) for conferences within Europe.
