Program Details

The Organizing Committee of CCTA 2021 is pleased to announce Student Support, made available by the IEEE Control Systems Society. Offering complimentary conference and workshop registration, these CSS funds are meant to help students attend CCTA 2021 and become more integrated into the CSS scientific community.

The Student Support will grant complimentary Student Registration and complimentary registration for Workshops.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Receiving the Student Support for the online CCTA 2021 will not penalize applications for the award in future years.

Eligibility and Requirements

Each applicant must be a student member of both IEEE and CSS, at the time of the conference registration.

Those who are not CSS student members yet are welcome to become a member!

Only in case the number of applicants exceeds the budget, additional criteria will be used to make a selection among the applicants.
Priority will be given to student members who are an author or co-author of one (or more) paper(s) accepted for presentation and are going to present the paper(s) at the conference. Additional criteria, in decreasing order of importance, prefer applicants who will present more than one paper at the conference, have been student members of the CSS since more years, can demonstrate active participation in CSS. In addition, the selection committee may decide to limit awards where more than one presenter from the same institution would otherwise be offered an award to attend the same conference.
