Pisa, Italy - April 14-16, 2003

Student Grants

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of CEPIS-EIRSG, the European Information Retrieval Specialist Group of the Council of European Professional Informatics Societies, and of AICA, the Italian Association for Computer Science, ECIR-03 will contribute to the expenses of a number of European full-time students participating in ECIR-03 by awarding a limited number of travel grants. Each grant will come in the form of a flat contribution of 500 Euros (note that grants are not meant to cover the expenses of a participant in full).

Since funds are limited, precedence will be given to European full-time students who are also authors of accepted papers and intend to present their paper personally ("European" means "studying at a European university", irrespective of the actual nationality of the student). In order to apply for the grant, a student applicant should send a message to the address ecir03info@isti.cnr.it with subject "ECIR-03 grant application" and containing the following data:

  • personal data of the applicant (Name, Age, Organization, Degree for which the applicant is studying, Name of Supervisor);
  • title of the paper by the student that has been accepted for presentation at ECIR-03 (if any), with the indication whether this has been accepted for oral or for poster presentation;
  • a specification whether this paper will be presented by the student or by another co-author;
  • a one-page CV + list of up to five main publications (this can be attached as a .pdf file).

Proof of full-time student status should also be separately sent, in the form of an e-mail by the student's supervisor who certifies the full-time student status (as at the date of the application) of the applicant, and sent to the address ecir03info@isti.cnr.it with subject "ECIR-03 student status".

All applications will need to be received by January 25, 2003.

Notifications that the grant has or has not been awarded will be e-mailed by January 30, 2003.
