RuleML Student Travel Awards

Two student travel grants of the value of up to 1000 USD (plus free registration to the conference) are made available to student authors of papers, demos, and so on being presented at the conference. These grants support travel, and registration for the conference. This travel grant program is administered by the RuleML organization.

RuleML-2009 Student & New Researcher Travel Support

The RuleML Group invites applications for small awards to help cover the cost of travel, living expenses, and registration to RuleML-2009.

Preference will be given, in this order, to:

  • Applicants who are the principal author of a paper and will be presenting the paper at RuleML-2009.
  • Applicants who are the principal author of a demo (paper) and will be presenting the demo at RuleML-2009.
  • Applicants who are not presenting work will not be funded.

Preference will also be given to applicants that have only limited alternative travel support; and to applicants who are full-time students at the time of the conference.
