R9 Graduate Student Initiative
The IEEE MTT-S Education Committee recently approved, during the MTT-S AdCom meetings, the implementation of a Region 9 Graduate Student Initiative to encourage the participation of graduate students from Latin America in LAMC-2023. The Region 9 Graduate Student Initiative provides partial financial support to attend LAMC only to graduate students officially registered in a master's or doctoral program offered by a university or research institute located in Latin America who are also MTT-S members.
The selection committee of the 2023 Region 9 Graduate Student Initiative will apply the following priority criteria to evaluate the application of each qualifying student requesting this support:
1. Graduate student who is the first author of a LAMC paper accepted for oral presentation.
2. Graduate student who is the first author of a LAMC paper accepted for a poster presentation.
3. Graduate student who is a co-author of a LAMC paper accepted for oral presentation.
4. Graduate student who is a co-author of a LAMC paper accepted for a poster presentation.
5. Graduate student who is just attending LAMC.
In the application form fields (next page), for selected types 1, 2, 3 or 4, you must specify the paper or poster information.
If type 5 is selected, it is not necessary to fill in paper/poster information.
Conditions for Reimbursement
We will request all sponsored students to submit, after the conference, a one-page report describing the most interesting technical or professional aspects they learned during LAMC-2023, as well as their overall impression or comments about the conference.
The amount of financial support will be evaluated for each candidate; it will be around US$660 (it might be more depending on the total amount of applications received). The reimbursement will be done upon presentation of the corresponding receipts and invoices only for the dates of the conference: December 6-8, 2023. The reimbursement will be done approximately one month after the conference.
If you want to apply for this R9 Graduate Student Initiative, please complete this application form and send it by e-mail in pdf format to the Evaluation Committee Chair: Gidy Florez (email@example.com), with copy to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, before October 4, 2023.
