Scholarships for young researchers, professors and students

The 2nd International Conference on Smart Data and Smart Cities will award some scholarships to outstanding young researchers, professors and students from Mexican or foreign universities who wish to participate in the event.

Scholarship applications must be submitted through the scholarship application form by October 2, 2017 at 23:59. The scholarships can involve a 80%, 50%, or 20% reduction on the standard fee for young researchers and professors or a 100% reduction (no fee) for the student fee.

The selection of scholarships will be made by the organizing committee based on the records submitted by each applicant. The form collects information about the research and/or studies carried out by the applicant, the name of the institution to which he/she belongs and a letter of motivation. The number of the scholarships awarded will depend on the budget allocated to this activity. Paper authors are not eligible for the scholarship. However, second authors are eligible for a 30% discount on the standard fee. See details in the section second author fee discount below.

The results of the scholarship award will be notified by e-mail directly to applicants 72 hours after receiving the scholarship form. Results will be unappealable.

Scholarships do not cover lodging, transportation or other expenses. Therefore, it is necessary to foresee any additional expenses you may have.

To apply for a scholarship, fill out the required fields on the scholarship application form.

Second author fee discount

In case you are a co-author of an accepted paper for presentation at the 2nd International Conference on Smart Data and Smart Cities, you could have a 30% reduction in registration fees as long as another of your co-authors has already paid the full registration fee. Example, the paper Implementing Smart Cities by Juliette, John and Michael has been accepted for its presentation at the conference. As soon as one of the three authors pays a standard fee registration, the two others can pay a second author fee in order to attend. Co-authors must agree who should pay for the standard fee registration.
