IEEE Cluster 2021 - Student Mentoring Program

The Student Mentoring Program at IEEE Cluster 2021 is a program for
PhD, Masters, and Undergraduate students to help students build their
scientific careers. While the scientific presentations and
interactions with conference attendees during the conference help
students develop their technical skills, the Student Mentoring Program
complements and extends this development by fostering the integration
of the students into the Cluster scientific community, advising them
to plan their professional career in academia or industry, improving
their scientific communication skills, and providing them with the
right entry points for efficient professional networking.

Applying to the Mentoring Program

All interested students can apply through a simple process, by
providing a short description of why they want to participate in the
conference, information on any works submitted to the conference or
associated workshops, the name of their advisor, and their CV. The
student’s adviser should endorse the student’s application and will be
contacted once the application is submitted.

Student attendance awards - for students at U.S. institutions

Thanks to the National Science Foundation, several attendance awards
will be available for students enrolled in US institutions and
participating in the Student Mentoring Program at the IEEE Cluster
2021 conference. Students with accepted papers in the main conference
track or in workshops, or students with posters must apply to and
participate in the Student Mentoring Program to be eligible for the
attendance award. Notice of awards will be made prior to the
conference. The awards will be distributed post-conference in the form
of reimbursements against registration expenses submitted by the
student. Both graduate and undergraduate students can apply.

Submission Guidelines

Please submit your application via the online submission system
(https://clustercomp.org/submit). A sample application form is
available here.

Important Dates

Applications will be reviewed starting on: August 10, 2021.

Attendance awards for students in USA institutions in the amount of up
to $100 will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis until
completion of the available funding.

We will accept applications for the student mentoring program with NSF
travel support (when applicable) until August 10, 2021. Applications
submitted after August 10, 2021, but prior to August 31, 2021, will be
