Mentoring ● Cluster 2023
Student Mentoring Program
The Mentoring Program at IEEE Cluster 2023 is a program for PhD, Master, and Undergraduate students that wants to help students building their scientific career as efficiently as possible. The scientific presentations and interactions with conference attendees help them develop their technical skills. The Student Mentoring Program complements and extends this development by fostering the integration of the students into the Cluster scientific community, advising them to plan their professional career in academia or industry, improving their scientific communication skills, and providing them with the right entry points for efficient professional networking.
Applying to the Mentoring Program
The Student Mentoring Program is not just another publication venue. All interested students can apply through a simple process, by providing a short description of why they want to participate in the conference, the id(s) of any works submitted to the conference or associated workshops, the name of their advisor, and their CV. The student’s adviser should endorse the student’s application and will be contacted once the application is submitted.
Student travel awards - for students at U.S. institutions
Thanks to the National Science Foundation, several travel awards will be available for students enrolled in US institutions and participating in the Student Mentoring Program at the IEEE Cluster 2023 conference. Notice of travel awards will be made prior to the conference. The travel awards will be distributed post-conference in the form of reimbursements against actual travel, registration, and accommodation expenses submitted by the student. Both graduate and undergraduate students can apply.
Applications for the Mentoring Program and the NSF travel grant can be submitted starting on July 1, 2023, until August 28, 2023.
Note that travel awards for students in USA institutions in the amount of up to $1,250 will be assigned based on a competitive selection according to the application information and the recommendation letter.
