Attracting prestigious events to Scotland improves the visibility and esteem of SICSA institutions, as well as providing access to renowned international events for academics and PhD students closer to home.
SICSA is able to provide sponsorship for major international conferences to be held in Scotland with an Informatics and Computer Science focus.
- 50% of the free places must be for SICSA students out-with the host University
- Funding can only be applied to students enrolled within a SICSA department
- Can only be applied to large scale, international events only. Smaller workshops or symposiums should seek funding through Research Theme Event Sponsorship
Unfortunately due to funding constraints we are no longer accepting sponsorship applications for Conferences scheduled to take place before August 2017.
How much funding is available?
- Up to £350 per student scholarship awarded can be requested
