Student Conference Grant Support Application

ACM SIGMM aims to encourage student participation in its flagship conference, the ACM Multimedia. To this end, the conference is making available a grant to support up to 10 students to attend the conference. The grants are sponsored by IBM and Microsoft. The grant will provide free-registration for the full conference package that includes registration to the main conference, one workshop and any number of tutorials, subject to schedule. Awardees, however, will be responsible for their own travel arrangements, including health insurance if necessary. Selected students will be recognized at the ACM Multimedia 2005 award session.

To qualify for the student conference grant, a recipient must be a registered, full-time student.

Selection is based on regions where the recipient is from, and the reasons for seeking student conference grant. Preferences will be given to student authors presenting their work in the conference.

To apply for the grant, students must send an email to The subject of the email should be "ACM Multimedia Student Grant Program -- $LASTNAME", where $LASTNAME should be replaced by the last name of the applicant. The following information should be included (not attached) in the email in plain text (HTML, PDF, Postscript or any other type of data are not accepted):

  1. Current academic status, including institution and number of years until graduation.
  2. The program your paper appears in and the title of your paper.
  3. Indication if you are going to present the paper.
  4. The reason for seeking student conference grant.

To confirm the application and the need to support the student, the applicant's advisor needs to send an email to with the subject "ACM Multimedia Student Grant Program NOMINATION -- $LASTNAME". $LASTNAME in the subject should be replaced by the last name of the applicant.

The decisions made by the ACM SIGMM Student Grant Committee are final. The Committee reserves the right to not award the grants to any applicant. We look forward to receiving a large number of applications.
