Grants and Contracts Details


Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, the 21st IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols (and associated events) will be held in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina, during the week of October 21-24, 2014. Support from the National Science Foundation is requested on behalf of graduate students attending institutions in the United States. The requested $15,000 will support approximately twenty awards to graduate students. The goal of this funding is to broaden the audience attending the premier network protocol conference, the IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols (ICNP), and as a result, raise the level of interaction and the potential for new collaborations, new investigations, and higher quality research. By supporting graduate students to attend ICNP 2014, this proposal will increase the dissemination of the conference research results to a larger and a more diverse audience, which otherwise would not have been able to attend. In doing so, this proposal will contribute to the strength and inclusiveness of the research community, and will lead to the long term health and vitalization of ICNP. In addition, by giving preference in grant awards to women and underrepresented students, we hope to increase the participation among these groups. By advertising to a wide range of colleges and universities, participants from a more diverse set of institutions should be able to attend and benefit from the conference. A broad, as well as diverse population is key to the health of the research community and the discipline.
