The Irish Pattern Recognition and Classification Society (IPRCS) is pleased to offer a small number of national (UK and Ireland residence) and international travel bursaries for delegates presenting at the 26th Irish Machine Vision and Image Processing Conference (IMVIP) held in Galway from Wednesday August 28th to Friday August 30th, 2024.
The purpose of the travel bursaries is to support students, early career researchers, and people returning to research following a career break or time away from research (within 6 months of the application). The travel grants will be awarded at a fixed rate of €250 for national bursaries and €500 for international bursaries. Successful candidates will receive their bursary directly via a SEPA transfer.
Have a paper submitted to IMVIP 2024,
Be the presenting author of the paper if accepted to IMVIP 2024,
Be a registered student at a Higher Education Institution, an early career researcher, or someone returning to research following a career break.
Have considered alternative funding opportunities and be able to attend and present at the conference if awarded.
How travel bursaries are awarded:
Applications will be reviewed by members of the IPRCS committee and the IMVIP 2024 Organising Committee. Bursaries will be allocated by taking into account:
Quality of the applicant’s paper submission to IMVIP 2024,
The career stage of the applicant (priority given to students),
The justification that is given for the requested bursary.
The format of the paper (priority given to full-paper submissions).
The decision of the IPRCS, as the awarding body of the travel bursary, is final.
The successful applicant must register, attend, and present their research at IMVIP 2024.
Successful applicants will receive their award after presenting in person at the conference.
The bursary is a one-off monetary payment to the successful applicant. The IPRCS and the IMVIP organising committee are not responsible for the applicant’s travel, visa obtainment, accommodation, insurance, or conference registration. All such matters are the responsibility of the applicant.
The IPRCS has the right to remove and re-allocate awarded bursaries if the applicant does meet the eligibility of the bursary scheme or does not fulfill the obligations of the award.
