The steering committee is soliciting federal grants and industry donations to help defray meeting costs for graduate students and for those undergraduates who are the first and presenting author of a poster or talk.

Students are actively encouraged to apply for travel awards within their graduate program, college or university. If you have concerns about student financial aid or need information to assist in any local grant application, please do not hesitate to contact the conference chair, John Fowler, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Make reservations at the Doubletree Hotel (credit card will not be charged until checkout).

NO applications for student support received after January 31, 2012 will be considered. Please act promptly to assure that your application is received before this deadline.
