Dear colleagues,

Thanks for the generous support from the National science foundation,
students who are US citizens or permanent residents, and who are planning
to present their work at IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent
Robots and Systems (IROS) 2011, are invited to apply for a travel grant.
This grant will cover partial airfare reimbursement for coach/economy
class on US flag carriers only. In addition, each awardee will be eligible
for up to $400 to support conference registration and workshop & tutorial
costs at a rate of an IEEE student member.

The deadline for submitting an application is 09/01/2011, and awards will
be announced by 09/10/2011. The application for travel funds consists of
an email from the advisor of the applicant, sent to
