SIGARCH and IEEE TCCA, along with Microsoft, AMD, HP, and IBM, are
providing a significant amount of funds to support travel grants for
student members of SIGARCH and/or TCCA to attend ISCA 2007. Funds can
be requested to cover transportation and lodging costs (limited to
travel and hotel from June 8th - June 13th). However, meals and
symposium registration will *not* be funded. (Registration costs
are already greatly reduced thanks to ISCA Industry Support).

deadline for both types of grant is Monday April 30th, 2007 and
recipients will be notified on or about May 7th.
The size of grants may be limited due to budgetary constraints. In particular, there may be upper bounds on specific items, and we may set different upper bounds based upon the level of involvement (symposium speaker vs. workshop speaker vs. coauthor, for example). Reimbursement will occur after the conference, and is contingent upon the submission of original travel receipts and an acceptable 1-2 page description of what you thought was the most significant talk at the conference (and why). This report will not be read by a nameless bureaucrat, but rather by a member of the SIGARCH board, who intends to present a summation of the opinions of the travel grant awardees at the next SIGARCH business meeting.
Applications must be received by the deadline - applicants are encouraged to submit via email. To apply for a grant, email a completed application form to:
