ICML 2010 - Scholarships

Student Travel Scholarship Program
Jump to Google Diversity Grant

The goals of this program are to integrate students in their research sub-community and to give them a forum to talk to leading researchers in the field about their Ph.D. research. Students participating in the program will be provided scholarships to subsidize travel, conference registration, and housing expenses for ICML 2010. Note that both US and international students are eligible for this program.

Each sponsored student will have a poster on their research. Each paper presented during the daytime technical program will also be presented at a poster session. Students presenting papers at the conference will naturally present posters as part of the normal conference schedule. One of our goals, however, is to get as many students as possible involved in their research community as early as possible. To participate in this program, a student does NOT need to have an accepted paper at the conference. The posters of such students will be integrated into the poster sessions. The poster format encourages the student participants to begin building a rapport with established researchers.  However, students with accepted papers will be given priority in the scholarship decision.
