Sixteenth International Conference on
Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS 2011)

Newport Beach, California,  March 5 ~ 11,  2011

Travel Grants

Funded by: NSF, SIGARCH, SIGOPS, SIGPLAN, & Google.

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).

Google will provide travel support for up to 2 female Computer Science Ph.D. students. The application to receive funding from Google is available here:

The deadline to apply for funding from Google is January 10th , 2011; Google will notify all applicants of their decisions on or before January 21st, 2011. Students who receive travel support from Google will be ineligible to receive additional funding from ASPLOS.

To apply for a travel grant directly from ASPLOS, please complete the following steps:

  • Complete this application form.
  • Applicants, compose an email to asplos2011travel at gmail dot com. For your subject line, please use “Travel Grant Application for <Your-Last-Name, Your-First-Name>”.
  • In the body of your email, please briefly describe your reasons for attending ASPLOS and your research interests.
  • Attach a current resume and the completed application form.

Student applicants also need to ask their advisor to send an e-mail to asplos2011travel at gmail dot com 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.

Travel grant applications must be received by January 26th, 2011. 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 acknowledge receipt of your application within a week of receipt. If you do not receive such an acknowledgement, please resend. If you still don't receive an acknowledge mail, please call the Travel Chair, Philip Brisk, at +1 (951) 827-2030.

We will do our best to notify you about the status of your application by January 30th, which is 3 days before the conference early registration deadline. 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 Philip Brisk for information.

Funding for ASPLOS travel grants has been generously provided by the NSF, the SIGARCH, the SIGOPS, and the ACM SIGPLAN Professional Activities Committee (PAC).
