Please share the note below with anyone you think might be interested. The
deadline is quite soon but it's a best effort submission.
As part of MobiSys 2016 being held in Singapore from June 23 - June 30 2016,
there is an accompanying 1st Asian Students Symposium on Emerging Technologies
or ASSET for short. The full symposium details are at the URL below. Here are
three key parts of ASSET.
1) ASSET is designed for students who have had limited research exposure
at international conference venues. In particular, as part of ASSET, students
will *get to attend an international research conference*, present their
research to a panel of experts, and also get to interact with and build their
peer networks. They will also get to present their work at the demo/poster
session of the main MobiSys conference itself! And have a *1 page writeup* of
the demo/poster presentation appear *in the ACM Digital Library* as part of the
supplementary MobiSys proceedings.
Note: you don't have to be based in Asia or even of Asian ethnicity to attend
ASSET or to apply for the scholarships below. Everyone is welcome!
2) To support students, we are offering *full travel and registration
scholarships* which will cover a large part of the expenses to attend ASSET.
The scholarship details are at https://sigmobile.org/mobisys/2016/grant.php
and will be awarded on a per-need basis with the majority of the funds planned
to go to students who have limited other sources of funding and who have never
attended conferences such as MobiSys before.
We are also offering a limited number of scholarships for junior faculty and
post-docs who need financial support to attend MobiSys. There are also a few
US-based student-only scholarships offered by the US National Science
3) As part of ASSET, we have lined up world-class researchers to present
topics of interest to the ASSET attendees. In particular, we have managed to
convince *3 SIGMOBILE Rock Star* winners, Professor Suman Bannerjee, Profession
Lin Zhong, and Professor Romit Roy Chowdhury, to present at ASSET.
In addition, Professor Nigel Davies, the steering committee chair of the
HotMobile workshop has also agreed to present.
Thus, students attending ASSET will have *career changing* opportunities to
improve their research, build and improve their peer networks, and to interact
and learn from top researchers from around the world.
To ease the burden of attending, we have planned to provide numerous travel and
registration grants on a per-need basis.
More details about ASSET (including submission details) are available at
Important Submission Note
To attend ASSET, students will have to submit a 1 to 2 page research proposal,
in English. The deadline for this research proposal is May 9th 2016 2359 hrs
Anyone on Earth (AOE) timezone. However, what we expect is just a best effort
submission and not a perfect submission. The goal of ASSET is to *help students
improve*. Thus, we will be very generous in accepting their research proposals
(the grammar, structure, content etc. does not need to be perfect). If a little
more time to submit a proposal is needed, please let me know. We have some
leeway (just a few days only though) here as well.
Please help spread the news about ASSET among students and encourage them to
submit their research proposals!
