Thirteenth International Workshop on
Real-Time Business Intelligence and Analytics

August 26, 2019 - Los Angeles, CA, USA

Scholarship Awards

BIRTE 2019 aims at providing an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students to present their work and receive constructive feedback and mentoring from established researchers. Towards this, the workshop will provide a limited number of scholarship awards to students, with the additional objective of increasing the diversity of participation.

Priority will be given to student authors who submitted a paper to BIRTE 2019 and students from underrepresented groups at the workshop, e.g., women or members of underrepresented minorities and/or for those attending BIRTE for the very first time.

All applicants need to be full-time students (undergraduate or graduate) and need to attend all the BIRTE workshop sessions.

Each awardee will receive a free early registration to attend the BIRTE workshop and VLDB (plus any workshops on Friday). Awardees traveling from farther away will also receive additional funds up to $1200 to partially cover the expense to attend the workshop. Awardees are expected to make their own arrangements for travel and accommodation and will be reimbursed after the workshop by submitting all required documentation and original receipts.
