SIGCHI Student Travel Grant
The SIGCHI Student Travel Grant (SSTG) program is intended to enable students to present their accepted work at SIGCHI sponsored or co-sponsored conferences, such as SUI 2017. The goal is to pre-approve students for grants before a conference’s submission deadline, so that if a student gets a submission accepted, that student can count on having a grant awarded for travel to the conference. More information about who is eligible, the evaluation committee and criteria or deadlines can be found on the SSTG website.

The city of Brighton is nestled between the sea and the countryside providing a wealth of things to do. From the exotic Royal Pavilion, with its Indian styled exterior and Chinese inspired interior, to the Lanes, home to all manner of quirky shops from antique stores to high-end boutiques, Brighton has a wealth of attractions for everyone, truly catering for all tastes. Those who like to get active can try their hand at sailing, kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding as well as classic beach volleyball. Alternatively you could enjoy a match of Ping-Pong on one of many table tennis tables dotted around the city; or just try taking a stroll down the half a mile of boardwalk on the Brighton Pier. Last but not least, British Airways i360, is the latest vertical addition to seafront attractions of Brighton giving you a 360 view of east Brighton from 162 m up in the sky. Offerings don’t end when the sun goes down, as there are lots of things to do in Brighton at the evening. From theatre and comedy to live music and nightclubs there will be something to satisfy those night owls!
If you plan to extend your visit to Brighton, short bus trips to both Brighton Marina and Devil’s dyke are highly recommended. Brighton Marina offers a wealth of restaurants, a beautiful sea view, and a bowling complex. If you enjoy countryside and its myths and mysterious, there is no place better to see an unfinished work of the devil himself than the Devil’s dyke. The last shovel of earth he through over his shoulder, before running away, has formed the Isle of Wight.
