EuroSys, with generous donations from our sponsors Eurosys, Artist Design, and University of Salzburg, offers several grants to enable students, post-docs, and faculty, worldwide to attend the conference. Students, post-docs and researchers in Eastern Europe are specially invited to apply. The grants cover the EuroSys conference registration, including meals and proceedings, and possibly hotel room during the conference and funding for travel expenses.
Grants will be awarded by the grant committee based on a combination of need and merit. Students receiving a travel grant need to agree to serve as a session scribe (if required) during the conference. Applicants are encouraged to participate in the poster session and in the workshops.
Who can apply?
Funding is available to all students, post-docs and faculty at educational institutions, world-wide. Besides students, post-docs and researchers in Eastern Europe are also invited to apply.

- A fully filled-out EuroSys Travel Grant Application. The application form appears below.
