MICAI 2017

Travel Grants for students

Registration fee must be paid independently from this
grant application. A travel grant is not a fee waiver.

The Mexican Society for Artificial Intelligence (SMIA) offers a limited number of grants for full-time students from developing countries (Mexico included) to attend MICAI 2017 conference.

The grant consists in the reimbursement on site of the travel expenses (transportation and lodging), up to the amount of the registration fee previously paid by the awardee. For example, supposing that the awardee has paid the registration fee of USD 590 but his or her airplane ticket was USD 1000, then SMIA can only reimburse USD 590; however, if the ticket and lodging were USD 300, then SMIA will reimburse those USD 300. The reimbursement procedure will be communicated to awardees in due time.

The candidates should satisfy the following eligibility criteria:

Grants will be awarded taking into account the paper's evaluation scores and the supporting documents. SMIA reserves the right to request additional information, to partially fund a grant application, or to reject it without explanation. A student can receive only one grant per conference.
