N2Women Event

N2Women is pleased to announce the continuation of our N2Women Young Researcher Fellowship awards. N2Women considers you a young researcher if you are currently a student, working as a post-doc, or in the 1st or 2nd year of your new research career. N2Women fellows will be offered complimentary conference registration and up to 400EUR travel allowance will also be provided in case of travel to the meeting where an N2Women event will be held.

In exchange, the young researcher must help organize the N2Women meeting. The benefit of doing the organization, in addition to the travel funds, is for the young researcher to connect with the organizers of the conference who are, typically, leaders in the research field. We will arrange for a faculty or research member of N2Women to assist/mentor the young researcher in this task.

Support for this fellowship has been kindly provided by IEEE SmartComp 2022 conference.

The deadline for applications for SMARTCOMP 2022 is ***April 15th, 2022***.
Acceptance notification is 2 weeks after the application deadline.
