IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium 2011
October 18-21, 2011
Caribe Royale, Orlando, Florida, USA



Student Travel Support


The 2011 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS) will have a limited amount of funds to support student travels. If you are a student and are interested in getting such a support, please pay attention to the criteria in "The Criteria for Student Travel Support" for qualification. In addition, when submitting abstracts through our abstract submission website that is accessible from http://ewh.ieee.org/conf/ius_2011/, please make appropriate selections, provide all the information, and answer all the questions requested there (this may include basic information about your lab, your advisor, expected thesis completion date, and expected graduation date, etc). If you are submitting more than one abstract, you should provide the information for each of the abstracts submitted. If your request is approved, the money will be available at the Symposium registration desk. The amount of money for each student awarded may be different depending on the geographical location of the student. Awards will be made on a competitive basis (please see the criteria below). Award winners will be notified at about the same time as that of the abstract status notification (about two weeks after the end of the 2nd Technical Program Committee meeting, which will be held from June 18, 2011).

Please notice that the decisions on student travel support award are final. The awards are intended to partially defray the cost of the travel and are not intended to be sufficient to cover your entire travel expenses.

We look forward to your participation of the conference. See you in Orlando in October 2011.

The Criteria for Student Travel Support

  • Abstract is accepted and the student is the presenter of the abstract at the conference (Student Paper Competition Finalists may get a higher priority in getting the award given all other conditions are the same)
  • The student is an IEEE as well as IEEE UFFC member (a valid IEEE membership # of the student should be provided during the abstract submission for verification). If you are not a member, please click the link, Join IEEE UFFC, to join the IEEE UFFC society.
  • The student has not previously received a travel support from any of the IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposia (the student must provide correct information during abstract submission to avoid the award being retracted later)
  • Is still a student at the time of the conference (a valid student ID is needed to get the award money)
  • Only one student from each lab or advisor could be supported
