Application Details

ASPLOS will offer travel grants for students to attend the conference, in addition to reduced student registration fees. Travel grants will also be made available to junior faculty members, underrepresented minorities, and faculty members from non-Ph.D. granting colleges. The size and number of these grants will vary depending on funding availability and the number of applications that we receive. Expenses will be reimbursed after the conference; grant receipients will be asked to submit original receipts.

While we encourage all in need of a travel grant to apply, priority will be given to paper and poster presenters, co-authors, and underrepresented minorities (including women and undergraduate students interested in research).

Travel grant recipients are expected to assist the conference organizers in some way. For example, helping on the registration desk. These services are greatly appreciated, and provide additional networking opportunities with other conference participants. Applicants are also encouraged to participate in events such as the Poster Session, or the Doctoral Workshop.

The details for the application process are: To apply for a travel grant, you will need to:

  • For students, ask your advisor to send an e-mail to with the subject line "Student Travel Status Confirmation for <Your Last Name, Your First Name>", stating that you are a full time student pursuing an MS/Ph.D. or undergraduate research in the areas covered by ASPLOS or VEE. Just a brief confirmation is needed, not a full reference or letter of support.

Travel grant applications must be received by January 16th, 2012. For students, the confirmation email from their advisor needs to be received by that date also. Because of the large number of applications we expect to receive, we will not solicit these letters from your advisors—it is your responsibility to ensure that your advisor sends the email before the deadline.

We will do our best to notify you about the status of your application by January 19th, which is before the conference early registration deadline (the last day for early registration is January 23rd). Note that award decisions will be made based on funding availability. Note also that some awards may be made only after the conference.

Please contact the travel grants chair, Derek Murray ( with any questions.
