Student Travel Award:

AUCC2013 has received funding from the CSS Outreach Fund to support student travel to the conference. The funds will be used to support the student travel expenses to attend the conference. In order to apply for the student travel award, students will be required to meet the following eligibility requirements:
  • the student should be enrolled full time at a university.
  • have an accepted paper at the conference, with the student as the first named author.
The above travel award is not expected to cover the total cost of the conference travel being undertaken. It is necessary for applicants to ensure that other funding is available. Therefore, preference will be given to students who have obtained partial support from their university or supervisor. Due to limited funding, the total number of travel awards, and total amount awarded per student will depend on the number of applications received. Applications confirming the student eligibility and stating the reasons for seeking student travel award should be sent to the Conference Chair, Victor Sreeram, [email protected] before 23rd August 2013.

Best Student Paper Award:

This award will be presented to a student whose paper is selected by a committee. The award consists of a certificate and a check for AUD $500. Runner ups will be awarded a certificate only.
Eligibility: the accepted papers on which a postgraduate or undergraduate student is the first named author are eligible for the award. In particular, the first author should be enrolled as a postgraduate or undergraduate student on the date of the conference submission deadline. The student's supervisor should write a nomination letter confirming the student eligibility and outlining the reasons for nomination; the letter (emails are accepted) should be sent to the Conference Chair, Victor Sreeram, [email protected]
