EUCA student support program

The EUCA Student Support Program is meant to enable promising students to attend the European Control Conference (ECC), present their papers, and become more integrated into the scientific community. Particular focus is on supporting students with low income whose attendance cannot be funded from other sources.

Eligibility and Requirements

In order to be, an applicant must:

  • be an author or co-author of (at least) one paper accepted for presentation at the ECC;
  • present at least one of the accepted papers;
  • be a student (PhD, Master or Bachelor student) at a scientific institution.

In case the number of applicants exceeds the budget, additional criteria will be used to make a selection among the applicants. These additional criteria, in decreasing order of importance, prefer applicants who:

  • have not benefited from this scheme in the last two years.
  • will present more than one paper at the conference.
  • are the first author of the accepted paper.
  • have low income and attendance cannot be covered by other sources.

In addition, the selection committee may decide to limit support where more than one presenter from the same institution would otherwise be offered support to attend the same conference.

Final decisions will be made by a selection committee chosen by the conference organizers.

Application procedure

To apply, students must send to the ECC21 secretariat via email, the following:

  1. The EUCA Student Travel Support Application Form (EUCA-StudentApplicationForm)
  2. Scanned confirmation that the applicant is enrolled as a student.
  3. Signed letter from an academic supervisor/co-author supporting the application form, and confirming that the student is a main contributor to the paper (with what percentage), and the student’s financial need.

Please submit the supporting documents via email to the ECC21 secretariat with Subject “EUCA Student Travel Support Application”, no later than Monday, March 22, 2021.

Decision messages about travel support will be sent out on Monday, March 29, 2021.
