We are pleased to announce that IEEE MASS 2017 will provide a limited number of travel grants up to US $800 to student authors (both within and outside the USA) and few junior faculty members (within the USA only) who have papers in MASS. Thanks are due to the generosity of the National Science Foundation, the IEEE Technical Committee on Distributed Processing and IEEE Technical Committee on Simulation.

An endorsement letter from the advisor on a letterhead must also be included. The award is limited to one author per paper and priority will be given to junior researchers as per the order of co-authors.
