The 2010 ACC expects
to have limited funds available to assist students who are traveling
to the conference to present papers. These funds will be provided
in part by the IEEE Control Systems Society, the ASME Dynamics and Control
Division, and the American Automatic Control Council. The intent of
the travel grants is to supplement other sources of funding; full travel
reimbursement will not be available. The available funds will be divided
fairly among the students who apply.
include student registration fee, hotel (partial, e.g. for sharing a
room), and travel (air or train ticket). Non-reimbursable expenses
include regular (full) registration, meals, and local transportation
(taxis, shuttles, parking, etc). Note that the different funding
sources have different restrictions. For example, the ASME and IEEE
funds require ASME or IEEE student membership, respectively.
There is a two stage
application process to receive this travel assistance:
Step 1. The student
must submit a student travel award application through PaperPlaza (From
the PaperPlaza main page, click on "Submit a contribution to 2010
ACC" and then "Student Travel Award Application.")
The deadline for applications is May
Step 2. The student
must submit an expense report with receipts immediately after the conference
along with their advisor's certification that the expenses were not
otherwise covered by university, foundation, or industry funds.
The 2010 ACC is pleased
to announce a Student Best Paper Award: All primary, first-listed authors
of a regular contributed paper who were students at the time of submission
are eligible. To be considered for the award, the paper must be
nominated by the student’s advisor. The nomination must be submitted
through PaperPlaza (From the PaperPlaza main page, click on "Submit
a contribution to 2010 ACC" and then "Student Best Paper Nomination.")
The deadline for nominations is October
The finalists are required
to present their paper at the conference to be eligible to receive the
award. Travel expenses including hotel, transportation, conference
registration, and meals/incidental expenses (on a per diem basis) will
be covered to enable the finalists to attend.
Please note that the deadline for the reduced hotel rate is April 27th
Also, please be aware that these rooms are on a limited space-available basis.
The 2010 ACC is once again pleased to provide three hotel accommodation services to students. First, we can help you receive discounted hotel rates at the conference hotel. Second, we can help you find other students who may be interested in sharing a room at the 2010 American Control Conference. Third, we can provide directions for applying for the Student Travel Support. To access these services, go to: http://ace.cs.ohiou.edu/~2010acc.
