EUSFLAT Student Grants will be awarded.
A EUSFLAT Student Grant holder will be given a grant covering the conference registration. Eligibility criteria are:
- The candidate must be co-author and presenter of an accepted paper. Therefore, the candidates must apply after they receive the notification of acceptance but not later than the paper submission deadline. In case of multiple student authors, only one can apply for a grant.
- The candidate must be an EUSFLAT student member (M.Sc. or Ph.D.) at the time of application.
- The candidate has not received two EUSFLAT student grants before.
The application must be submitted via e-mail to the Local Organizing Committee of the conference (e-mail address: email@example.com). The e-mail must contain the EUSFLAT membership number and the number of the paper. There is no special form to apply for the grant.
The decision will be made by the notification of the paper acceptance.
The EUSFLAT Student Grant responsible on the EUSFLAT board will make an autonomous selection among the candidates. Additional criteria will be: referee reports on the paper, time since previous grant, fair distribution among institutes and countries, EUSFLAT membership of supervisor(s), etc. No communication on this matter is possible. The EUSFLAT web page will keep a record of past grant holders in order to guarantee transparency.
The Italian Group of Italian Researcher in Pattern Recognition (GIRPR) will award a young researcher for the best paper presented at WILF 2016.
The award will consist of a € 500 grant and a two-years subscription to GIRPR. The selection of the winner will be made by the general chairs of WILF 2016.
