Funding for U.S. Students to Attend ISWC 2008

June 1, 2008 - December 1, 2008

The ISWC 2008 Travel Fellowships provided $20,000 for students at U.S. Universities to attend the 2008 International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) which was held October 26-30, 2008 in Karlsruhe, Germany. Our goal was to encourage students who want to become part of the Semantic Web research community. Attendance at the conference created an opportunity for doctoral students to test their research ideas, present their current progress and future plans, and to receive constructive criticism and insights related to their future work and career perspectives.

In selecting applications for travel support, preference was given to students selected to participate in the doctoral consortium, followed by students who are first author on a paper accepted at the conference, followed by students who have other authorship on a conference or related workshop paper.
The following students each received $1800 to support their travel to the conference.
