Travel Award Information

We have travel funds available for graduate students to attend CNB-MAC, funded by the National Science Foundation. Travel funds may cover conference registration, two nights of accommodation, and travel to and from the conference. Registration includes CNB-MAC and the full ACM-BCB conference: awardees are expected to attend CNB-MAC.


Travel funds are available for graduate students from U.S. institutions who have an interest in computational network biology. In addition to considering students who are presenting work at CNB-MAC, we expect to fund students for whom this workshop is their first conference experience, students from groups that are historically marginalized in computational biology, and students who may not have authored work at the meeting.
