IEEE CSS Student Travel Support Program of CCTA 2022

Program Details

The Organizing Committee of CCTA 2022 is pleased to announce Student Travel Support, made available by the IEEE Control Systems Society. These funds are meant to enhance the chances of promising students to attend CCTA 2022, present their papers, and become more integrated into the CSS scientific community. The limited amount of funds available are not reimbursed to the student awardees, but are applied in advanced by the conference organizers to cover (i) conference registration and (ii) partial lodging expenses; for more information, please refer to

Eligibility and Requirements

Each applicant 

  1. must be an author or co-author of a paper accepted for presentation at CCTA 2022,
  2. must register at the conference (please see further instructions below),
  3. must present a paper.

In order to be eligible for either program, must be a (student) member of both IEEE and CSS, at the time of the conference registration.

Underrepresented minorities, women, and individuals with disabilities are highly encouraged to apply.

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 will present more than one paper at the conference, have been student members of the CSS since one, two, or 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.
