We would like to encourage the best students studying at
engineering colleges in India to attend the conference, through
travel scholarships provided on a merit basis. The conference will
provide students an exposure to the research going on at various
places worldwide, as well as an opportunity to meet a number
of leading researchers in the computing area. We hope this will
help those students who desire to continue their post-graduate
education, as well as those who are already a graduate student.
We are therefore pleased to announce the HiPC 2002 Travel
Scholarship scheme. Under this scheme, the conference will
take care of travel and hostel accomodation for the selected
students. In particular, the scholarship will include:
- Two-way second/sleeper class train fare between your college
or home and Bangalore.
- Free hostel accommodation in Bangalore.
Selected students will have to register for the conference, though
at a highly reduced rate. The special rates have
been made possible by sponsorships from Tata Consultancy Services.
The student registration at the conference includes:
- Participation in workshops on 18th December.
- Participation in all technical sessions on 19-21st December.
- Participation in one tutorial on 18th December.
- Conference lunches, refreshments, banquets, and the cultural event.
- Conference proceedings will be available online.
To apply for the scholarship, please send your bio-data by email
(preferably plain text) to
Prof. Dheeraj Sanghi at IIT-Kanpur. The scholarships
are very competetive, will be
awarded on the basis of merit. However your grades will not be the only
criterion for deciding. Please submit any details about you that will
convince the organizers about your research interest and abilities.
In particular, please mention in your email:
- What other conferences/workshops you have attended so far?
Did you present any paper, or participate in the poster sessions?
If yes, then give details.
- Have you written any paper in any magazine/journal or published
any technical report? If yes, then give details.
Also, please mention the following in your application:
- Do you need accomodation in Bangalore? Please note that we will
provide accomodation to everyone who asks for it. But we will
like to know whether you will be living with your friends or
relatives, so that we book only the desired number of rooms.
- Which tutorial, in the order of preference, will you like to
attend? Please note that first preference in tutorial will
be given to those who are paying full registration charges.
So it is possible that you may not get your first choice.
We will keep receiving applications till 1st November, but the
scholarship decisions will be on an on-going basis. Every couple
of weeks, we may decide on a few scholarships. In case you are
selected, you will be required to do advance registration within
two weeks of your selection.
