Travel grants provide financial support to students and faculties affiliated with universities with limited funding opportunities with a strong focus on universities in developing countries to attend the VLDB 2018 conference to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 27th to 31st August 2018 (http://vldb2018.lncc.br/).
The long-term goal of the program is to encourage talented young scientists to pursue a career in database research.
The VLDB Travel Fellowship Program provides 10 fellowships that allow free registration and grant an additional amount of US$1,500 toward other costs such as travel and lodging. Fellowship recipients are responsible for their own travel arrangements, including health insurance, if necessary.
