Travel Grants


Requesting Your Travel Reimbursement


If you were one of the students who received an HPCA 2009 travel grant award, i.e., you received email from Sangyeun Cho informing you of your award, then here is the procedure that you must follow to receive your award check:


- Fill out this form.

- Attach enough original receipts to the form to cover the total amount awarded to you

- Mail the completed form, along with the original receipts to Prof. Sangyeun Cho (at the address found on the form).


For electronic receipts, e.g., your conference/workshop registration, simply print out a copy of the electronic receipt and attach it to the form.


We will process the requests and issue the checks as quickly as possible.  Thank you for your patience and congratulations on receiving one of our travel grants!



Application Process


We are no longer accepting applications for travel grants for HPCA 2009.


HPCA will provide limited travel grants to full-time students. These grants are intended to partially cover the expense to participate in the conference. To receive a grant, a student must register for the conference. Grant amounts will be based on the available budget, number of applications, and details of the applications. Our budget for travel grants is limited, pending additional corporate or NSF support, but we will provide as many travel grants as possible. Students from underrepresented groups in computer science are especially encouraged to apply. In no case will an individual award exceed the amount on submitted receipts.


To apply for a grant, send an email to the Student Affairs Chair, Sangyeun Cho (cho at, with the subject line “HPCA-15 Student Travel Grant.”


The body of the message should include:


- Your name

- Your university affiliation

- Your advisor’s name and email address

- Whether you are a full-time student

- Whether you are an author of an HPCA-15 paper (please include the title and author list of the paper in your email)

- If you are an author, whether you will be presenting the paper

- Whether you are an author of a paper to appear in a workshop to be held at HPCA (please specify the workshop and the title/author list of the paper) and whether you will be presenting the paper

- Your estimated costs


Applications are due on Jan. 19, 2009. Applicants will be notified of their award status by Jan. 28, 2009.


If your ability to attend HPCA ‘09 is dependent on receiving a travel grant, please indicate this in your email and have your advisor send email to Sangyeun to confirm. We will provide further instructions for awardees through the conference web page once award decisions are made.
