EUCA Student Travel Support Program


The EUCA Student Travel Support Program is meant to enable promising students to attend the European Control Conference (ECC), present their papers, and become more integrated into the scientific community. Particular focus is on supporting students with low income and whose travel cannot be funded from other sources.

Program Details, Cost, and Implementation

Funds from European Control Association (EUCA) will be used to cover student registration (or in rare cases regular registration, e.g. if the number of accepted papers by the student applicant exceeds the upload limit of the student registration) and accommodation at a hotel.

The maximum level of support per student is determined on a per-conference basis by EUCA and the ECC organizers. It covers the student registration and 3-4 hotel nights at a hotel of the organizers’ choice. The registration as well as the conference hotel will be paid directly by the organizers. Travel to the conference location is not covered.

For further information about details of the program and to apply for student support, applicants should visit the relevant conference website.

Eligibility and Requirements

In order to be, an applicant must:

  • be an author or co-author of (at least) one paper accepted for presentation at the ECC;
  • present at least one of the accepted papers;
  • be a student (PhD, Master or Bachelor student) at a scientific institution.

In case the number of applicants exceeds the budget, additional criteria will be used to make a selection among the applicants. These additional criteria, in decreasing order of importance, prefer applicants who:

  • have not benefited from this scheme in the last two years.
  • will present more than one paper at the conference.
  • are the first author of the accepted paper.
  • have low income and travel cost cannot be covered by other sources.

In addition, the selection committee may decide to limit support where more than one presenter from the same institution would otherwise be offered support to attend the same conference.

Final decisions will be made by a selection committee chosen by the conference organizers.
