Greetings all, and the usual apologies for multiple postings -

We are happy to announce that two organizations have generously 
contributed funds to support participation by full-time students in ISWC 
2008. The Semantic Web Science Association (SWSA) and the U.S. National 
Science Foundation (NSF) will provide 10,000 Euro and $20,000 
respectively, with NSF funds being earmarked to support students attending U.S. 
Universities. We anticipate that the SWSA funds will support 10 awards of 
1000 Euro, and that the NSF funds will support 13 awards of approximately 

Our goal is to encourage students who want to become part of the Semantic 
Web research community, and we hope that participation in ISWC 2008 will 
be a significant event in the graduate careers of the selected students.

In selecting applications for travel support, preference will be given to 
students selected to participate in the doctoral consortium, followed by 
students who are first author on a paper accepted at the conference, 
followed by students who have other authorship on a conference or related 
workshop paper.

Details on how to apply are at 

Applications are due August 15, with notification of success by Sept. 1.
