The 9th European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSN 2012), with generous donations from the conference sponsors, offers scholarships to support students and researchers to attend the conference.

Update: the scholarship applications are closed. We received a whopping 75 applications, and were able to grant 10 scholarships.

Who should apply

Funding is available to graduate and doctoral students from any educational institution in the world. Applications from postdocs and researchers from developing countries are also encouraged.

We expect to award a minimum of 6 scholarships. Of these, a minimum of 3 scholarships are expressly reserved for students (graduate and doctoral) from institutions belonging to the EIT ICT Labs thanks to a specific sponsorship from TrentoRISE.

What is provided

Each scholarship covers the EWSN 2012 full conference registration plus one registration to a tutorial, and up to 700 EUR in support for accommodation and travel.
