[DMANET] IEEE CSF 2024 - Student Volunteers and Travel Scholarships

CSF 2024 - Student Volunteers and Travel Scholarships

37th IEEE Computer Security Foundations Symposium

July 8-12, 2024

*** Application deadline: May 17, 2024 ***

University of Twente
Enschede, The Netherlands

Thanks to the generosity and sponsorship of the National Science
Foundation and IEEE, we have a limited number of scholarships to award
to students to assist with travel and accommodation costs while
attending CSF 2024. Minor volunteer work may be asked from some of these
students (handing-in mics during Q&A periods, or help with early morning
registrations). The amount of each scholarship is not yet determined and
depends on the number of applicants and last minute donations.

We encourage applications from students from a wide variety of
institutions, diverse backgrounds, and first time attendees. Due to
restrictions on the travel sponsorship, the majority of travel grants
will be given to students enrolled in U.S. institutions, but we also
have funds to cover the participation of a limited number of students
from international institutions. Undergraduate and graduate students
will be considered.


To apply for a scholarship, students should send the following to Mayank
Varia (, Luca Mariot ( and Kaitai Liang

- Name and affiliation of student.
- Name and affiliation of advisor/supervisor.

- Brief description of the travel budget (e.g., approximate air fare,
and accommodation).
- Student's vita
- Brief letter from the student stating why the student believes he or
she would benefit from attending CSF. It should include:
* A brief summary of research interests and accomplishments to date;
* A description of areas reflected in the symposium program that
would impact the student's research; and
* Why attendance of CSF is important to this student.
- Brief letter of support from advisor/supervisor indicating why the
advisor believes the student would benefit from attending the
conference and confirming that the student is a Ph.D. candidate in
good standing. This letter can be sent directly to Mayank Varia,
Luca Mariot and Kaitai Liang, and should include:
* The advisor's view on the suitability of CSF program material to
the student's research area;
* Ways this particular student would benefit from attending CSF; and
* The advisor's opinion about the strengths and potential
contributions of the student.

Deadline for applications: May 17, 2024, AoE.

Applicants will be informed whether they received a scholarship, the
amount, and what will be expected from them, by June 3, 2024, AoE.

Awardees will have to register and pay upfront for all expenses, and
then send scanned copies of all their receipts by email. They will then
be reimbursed after the symposium for their expenses, up to the amount
awarded for their travel scholarship.

See for the
registration instructions and fees.
