EuroSys Grants

Thanks to generous donations from our supporters, the sponsors, and ACM SIGOPS, EuroSys offers several grants to enable students, post-docs, and faculty worldwide to attend the conference. The grants cover the EuroSys conference registration, including meals, and possibly some contribution toward accommodation and 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 the workshops.

Who can apply?

Funding is available to all students, post-docs, and faculty at educational institutions world-wide.

How to apply

Applications have to be submitted via the mail grants@eurosys2020.org. The “Subject” line should also contain the keyword “Eurosys 2020” and applicant’s name. The following information is requested from all applicants:

  • Author (only one): Give your name, email, and affiliation
  • Abstract: State here the anticipated travel expenses
  • Participation in EuroSys 2020 …: Describe briefly your participation in EuroSys and/or the workshops
