Student Grants

If you are a student interested in attending ISWC 2020, you may be eligible to apply for a grant to support the cost of attending. This year, grants are funded by the Semantic Web Science Association (SWSA).

Applying for a Student Grant

The deadline to apply for an ISWC 2020 Student Grant is of two types:

a) Type-1 application: for students with a paper accepted in the main conference tracks (Research/ In-use/ Resource), or Doctoral Consortium: Sep 4

b) Type-2 application: for students with a paper accepted in a workshop, poster/demo track, or challenge track and otherwise, for student participants at the conference: Sep 15

Please make sure that you have submitted your application and that your supervisor has sent us a confirmation email by this date.

To apply for a grant please follow these steps:

1. Make sure that you are eligible to apply for an ISWC 2020 Student Grant: You must (a) currently be a student at a higher education institution, and (b) you must have an ISWC 2020 submission that has been accepted to either the main conference, the doctoral consortium, an ISWC 2020 workshop, the poster/demo session or the Semantic Web challenge (you may have submissions to more than one of these categories). If there are additional funds available, we will also consider supporting students who do not have papers at the conference.
