Microsoft, the NSF, and ACM SIGARCH, SIGOPS, SIGPLAN are providing funds to support travel grants for students and suitable faculty attending ASPLOS 2008. These grants will cover partial travel and conference expenses. While we encourage all students to apply, priority will be given to paper and poster presenters, co-authors, underrepresented minorities (including women and undergraduate students interested in research), SIG members, and the size of the travel grant will vary. There will also be a number of travel grants for female junior faculty and faculty from non-research universities. Expenses will be reimbursed after the end of the conference and applicants will be asked to submit original receipts.
