Student Grants

ECIR 2013 organizers will provide a limited number of grants to Master/PhD students willing to attend the conference.Preferences will be given to full-time students studying/working in developing countries and presenting their work (nevertheless, those not presenting at the conference are eligible to apply) that have no alternative travel support. All applicants must be full-time students at the time of the conference.

There are three types of grants:
- registration fee waiver

Accommodation grants cannot be paid in monetary form. No grants covering other travel expenses will be provided.
