IEEE DSN 2019 Student Travel Grants – Due May 31, 2019

DSN ( is a premier international conference for presenting the research results, problem solutions, and insights on new challenges in dependability and security of computer systems and networks. This year the conference will be held in in Portland, Oregon on June 24 – 27, 2019 and we are looking forward to have a major student participation at the conference, including both graduate and undergraduate students.

We will provide student travel grants to partially offset the cost of students planning to attend the conference, thanks to the generous support from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), IEEE and IFIP organizing the conference series, as well as our industry sponsors.

To be eligible, the applicants must be enrolled in a U.S. or international degree program at the time of DSN 2019 (June 24 – June 27, 2019). The student authors of accepted papers in any of the conference tracks are especially welcome to apply. Level of participation, such as authoring a paper in regular main track and workshops, or presenting work in progress at the Student Forum and Fast Abstract sessions, will be used as a priority criterion in awarding the grants. Students from under-represented groups, those who do not have a paper at the conference, those attending the conference for the first time, and the undergraduate students are also encouraged to apply.

To apply, the students should submit by email a write-up not exceeding 500 words stating their student status and summarizing their current research related to dependable and secure computing, what they expect to learn by attending the conference, and how the participation may affect their future research directions. Ability to summarize is a quality of a good researcher, therefore too long a statement will be to the applicant’s disadvantage. The write-up should begin with the following information, in this order:

  • Student’s name, university name, and preferred contact e-mail address
  • Student’s postal address, and telephone number
  • Student’s current status and degree program (BS / MS / MS+PhD / PhD)
  • Name of thesis advisor/supervisor
  • Title and status of DSN submission (if any), including the track (main track, workshop, student forum, fast abstracts)

Faculty advisors of the graduate student applicants must provide a written statement regarding availability (or lack thereof) of travel funds for the students from NSF and other funding sources and commit to covering the cost of travel in excess of the travel grant.

Application submission is via e-mail, preferably as a PDF attachment, to the following address:

Applications must be received no later than May 31, 2019. 

Questions or comments about Student Travel Grants submission/selection should be directed to the committee at:

#MeTooSTEM Workshops:

Building Healthy Academic Workplaces
9:00 – 11:00 am, Health Sciences G-328

Strategies to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and gender discrimination at the University of Washington. The training is an interactive, research-driven session that provides individuals with skills in bystander intervention, micro-affirmations, and allyship. There will be time to consider the structural factors in academia that produce sexual harassment, and actions steps we can take to mitigate those factors and create a workplace culture in which everyone can flourish. UW campus resources will be shared.

This training will be co-facilitated by a UW staff member, Kiana Swearingen,  and a UW graduate student, Paige Sechrest, who both work on the Prevention of Sexual Harassment and Discrimination program through SafeCampus.

A MeTooSTEM Action Workshop with Dr. BethAnn McLaughlin *(Registration Required)
“End Campus Rape Insurance”: (REGISTRATION REQUIRED)
11:00 am – 2:30 pm, Samuel K. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center, Unity Suite
To register, visit: MeTooSTEM Action Workshop

#WeToo – Taking on harassment & discrimination through collective action & collective bargaining
3:00 – 5:00 pm, Health Sciences G-328

  • In an unsurprising finding, the latest report of the National Academies concluded that the existing Title IX-based structures meant to reduce the incidence of sexual harassment are grossly ineffective.
  • In response, academics are organizing to secure protections against harassment and discrimination.
  • Unions are a particularly effective vehicle for organizing, providing several avenues of redress. They provide stronger contractual protections against discrimination; they provide neutral third party arbitrations; they are a vehicle for collective action  & public storytelling; and they are a tool for doing political advocacy & building community support.
  • We will discuss and explain the existing ASE grievance procedures, and examples of collective actions and political advocacy.
  • We will workshop scenarios about how we can take collective action against harassment and discrimination at UW

Peer Supporter Training *(Registration Required)
3:00 – 5:00 pm, Health Sciences G-417
