SIGBED Research and Career Awards

ACM SIGBED Scholars 2020

Call for Applications

Are you currently enrolled in a bachelor degree program or did you receive your bachelor’s degree after January 1, 2019? Do you have an interest in the Internet of Things, embedded systems, or cyber-physical systems — that is, in computing systems that monitor and interact with their physical environment, such as autonomous cars? Would you like to learn more about the state of the art in technology, research and innovation? Would you like to attend one of the world’s premier events on cutting-edge research on the Internet of Things, embedded systems, and cyber-physical systems — for free?

Then you should apply for the ACM SIGBED Scholars Program!

ACM SIGBED will connect awardees with a mentor who is an active member in the SIGBED community and provide full financial support for attending CPS/IoT Week 2020 in Sydney, Australia, where awardees will have the opportunity to participate in the following top-tier scientific conferences:

  • ACM International Conference on Hybrid Systems: Computation and Control (HSCC)
  • ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS)
  • ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN)
  • IEEE Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS)
  • ACM/IEEE Conference on Internet of Things Design and Implementation (IoTDI)

About the Program

Starting in 2020, SIGBED is introducing a new program intended to recognize promising young scholars with an interest in the Internet of Things, embedded systems, or cyber-physical systems. The program is open to students of Computer Science or Computer Engineering (or a related discipline) who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate program (in any country), or who have received their Bachelor’s degree (or an equivalent degree) in 2019. No prior research work in the area is required. The candidates are encouraged to provide details about their specific interests in the area and any relevant prior experience and projects. 

Members of underrepresented minorities and young scholars with a nontraditional background are particularly encouraged to apply. The eligibility criteria and the timeline of the program are described below.
