The Career Workshop is pleased to provide travel grants to broaden the participation in the workshop. Students as well as junior faculty and researchers in computer architecture are eligible to apply. Students are encouraged to submit applications to both this workshop and to the MICRO conference student travel grants.

This support is made possible by the generous support from ACM SIGMICRO, IEEE TCCA, JST, and IBM Research. The grants will partially cover an applicant's travel cost to Fukuoka, Japan where the MICRO Career Workshop will be held.

Priority for travel grants will be given to women and minority applicants, with a particular emphasis on student presenters at the MICRO Career Workshop and early tenure PhD students.

Special funding will be provided for Companion Travel Grants to support attendees with disabilities or a parent of an infant less than one year old who cannot travel without the infant and a care provider for the infant

Applicants are requested to submit the following information:
1. Contact information, including the name of the student's institution
2. Membership in an under-represented group, if applicable
3. Estimate of travel costs
4. Information about other sources of funding indicating how any remaining travel costs will be covered.

Please send applications by email to the Student Travel Grant Chair, Samira Khan (samirakhan@virginia.edu). Use the subject line "CWWMCA 2018 Student Travel Grant Application."

The CWWMCA Travel Grants Committee will review all applications. Students will be directly reimbursed  after the MICRO Career Workshop and upon submission of receipts. Registration for the main MICRO conference will not be reimbursed.
