This year we are offering a Student Stipend Program for sponsoring students to attend I3D 2008. The program, financed by our generous corporate sponsors and by the ACM, is open to students worldwide (at the undergraduate or graduate level, or equivalent) who have not previously attended I3D. The awarded stipend per individual will not exceed $1000 US dollars and may go to reimburse travel, meal, and hotel. Free student registration to the conference and most meals are included with the stipend. Stipends will not be given to students who are the author or co-author of accepted papers or posters. The size of the requested stipend will not affect your chance of being selected. If there are more qualified applicants than stipends available, the committee will select with a subset of awards reserved for women and undergraduates.

To apply for the stipend, please send an application packet to by no later than Friday December 21st, 11:59PM EST, 2007. The applications will be reviewed by committee and the recipients of the stipends will be notified via email on Monday January 7th, 2008. Your application packet should be a single PDF file (e.g., print using PDFCreator: containing the following three parts:
