Travel Support for ISAF Participants

There are two sources of travel support as described in the followings:
A. IEEE-UFFC Society Travel Support for Students
The IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control Society (IEEE-UFFC) has generously provided limited funding to presenting student members of the IEEE-UFFC society. We are pleased to provide partial financial travel assistance to selected students attending the joint Hiroshima conference. Eligibility to apply for travel support are:
Full-time graduate student enrolled in a recognized course of study related Dielectric / Ferroelectric / Piezoelectric Area.
Be a current student member of IEEE and UFFC Society. If you are not member of the society, please consider to join the society as membership fee for students is considerably low with a lot of benefit.
Be the first author on the submitted abstract.
Present the poster or lecture in person at the conference.

B. United States NSF Travel Support administered by the Oregon State University
Conference received additional funding from the US National Science Foundation through Oregon State University to provide travel awards for the upcoming International Symposium on Applications of Ferroelectrics (ISAF) conference in Hiroshima. The purpose of the funding is to broaden participation at ISAF. While anyone can apply, we particularly encourage women, people with disabilities, and other underrepresented minorities to submit an application. Funds are available for students, postdocs, research associates, members of industry, government workers, early career faculty, and senior faculty. Senior faculty should be in peripheral fields who have not previously attended an ISAF meeting, but can make important contributions to the conference. We can provide multiple travel awards (in the approximate range of $500-$1,000) to attend the conference. It may be possible to receive a higher award depending on the number of applications or if someone is unable to find enough matching funds. While other funds are available for some of the student participant (A) , the NSF funds can only be provided to US-based conference participants. Participants must fly on US-carriers (or US carrier codeshare), according to federal law.

To apply, please send a .pdf file with answers to the following questions to Professor Michelle Dolgos ( with copy to Professor Ahmad Safari ( by January 31st, 2018. Please keep in mind the deadline for abstracts.
