If you are a student interested in attending ISWC 2016 you may be eligible to apply for a grant to support the costs of travel and lodging. This year, travel grants are funded by the Semantic Web Science Association (SWSA) and the US National Science Foundation (NSF).
The deadline for applying for an ISWC 2016 travel award is August 10th, 2016. Please make sure that you have submitted your application and that your supervisor has sent us a confirmation email by this date.
To apply for a grant please follow these steps:
The exact amount awarded to each student will depend on depending on the needs stated in the application and the kind of submission that they have in ISWC 2016. Preference will be given to students that are first authors on papers accepted to the main conference or the doctoral consortium, followed by those who are first authors on papers accepted to ISWC workshops and the Poster & Demo session.
This year we will consider supporting travel companions for attendees with special needs. We are also considering offering support to help attendees who would necessarily incur childcare costs whilst attending ISWC and travelling with a child. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss your specific requirements please do not hesitate to get in contact with us. If you have further questions please feel free to contact us (
In addition to the grants provided by the SWSA and NSF we encourage students to explore other funding opportunities. As a reference, we provide some pointers below to travel awards from different countries and organizations. If you are awarded a travel grant by an external organization as well as by SWSA or NSF, you need to notify us as soon as possible
