Student Support

  • Best Paper Award
    To support the authors an award of $1000 in recognition of their outstanding work will be offered, graciously sponsored by Springer.





The UMAP Student Travel Award Program is intended to help student authors attend UMAP.

Student Travel Awards are given to authors who are currently students or who were students at the time of submission of their papers. Preference in awards is given to Doctoral Consortium presenters and to students who are first authors and will present the paper at the conference and whose advisors do not have a current research grant. Preference is given to PhD students and to underrepresented groups in computer science such as women.

The size of the award given is based on the funds available, the student’s expected travel expenses minus other sources of support, and the number of applicants. Awards are typically larger for authors of full papers and Doctoral Consortium presenters. All students receiving support may be requestesd to help with a small organization task during the conference.

Financial support will be provided via reimbursement of expenses. Students should prepay the expenses and keep a record of all the invoices or receipts. Please note that student registration fees for UMAP 2018 will only be covered on the level of early bird student ACM members. We strongly advise to apply for ACM membership online ASAP (US$19 per year; please note that the ACM membership fee will not be covered by the student support grant).
