At least one author must register for the workshop by 31 August, 2010 as the presenter. For authors presenting multiple papers, one workshop registration is valid for up to three (3) papers in the same workshop.  The papers without valid registeration by 31 August, 2010, will be removed from the proceeding as well as the Wi-UAV program.

The organizers of IEEE GLOBECOM 2010 workshops as well as our attendees expect accepted papers to be presented at the workshop. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the workshop.

IEEE GLOBECOM 2010 Student Travel Grant

We are very pleased to let you know that IEEE GLOBECOM 2010 provides Student Travel Grant funds to broaden the participation of student authors. This fund is sponsored by IEEE ComSoc and the US National Science Foundation (NSF) for students worldwide to attend IEEE GLOBECOM 2010 in Miami, Florida. As we have very limited time to process applications and to make decisions on the student travel grant awards, please read this email carefully and take the appropriate actions in time, and the application deadline is final with no extension at all. Starting September 2nd, IEEE GLOBECOM 2010 accepts applications for student travel grant (STG).

Eligibility of STG Award: a) The applicant student must be a co-author of an accepted paper in IEEE GLOBECOM 2010 (main program or workshop); b) The applicant student must be full-time students registered toward a Bachelors, Masters, or Ph.D. degree in computer science, engineering or related field in a college or university when submitting their applications, and must not receive funding for attending the conference from other sources. c) During the expense reimbursement stage, the student must show the proof of having registered to attend the IEEE GLOBECOM 2010 conference. IEEE GLOBECOM 2010 features 40+ student travel grant awards in the range of $500-1000. (A portion of the fund is only applicable to US-university based students, others are applicable to worldwide students). A student who is awarded a student travel grant must attend the conference in person. The student must register, attend, and present the paper (if the student is a co-author) at the conference. Payment will only be made to the student as long as the award recipient submits the expense report (with receipts) within 45 days after the conference. More details will be provided to the students who are selected to receive the STG award.

How to apply a) The application should be submitted electronically via EDAS. After logging into EDAS, click the “Travel Grant” tab at your EDAS home page, and then select “Student Travel Grant for GLOBECOM 2010”. The application must include the following materials b) A reference letter from your advisor (your advisor can directly submit the reference letter on EDAS). c) Your up-to-date resume including your citizenship (required), and ethnicity and gender (optional, used to broaden the participation of under-represented students). d) A half-to-one page letter to state the purpose of attending the conference.
