Travel Grants to CASE 2016 available for researchers from Developing Countries. Apply Now!

The IEEE CASE Broadening Participation Travel Grants program is an outreach effort to broaden the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) community by enabling participation at the 2016 IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (CASE) by RAS members who would otherwise not be able to attend. In particular, this program is for non-author faculty and post-doctoral researchers from developing countries ( as defined by the IEEE) and by non-author students who are not yet fully engaged in RAS.
