Student Travel Awards

Thanks for the NSF and IEEE Life Science Technical Committee support, the IEEE BIBM 2018 will offer some student travel awards to student authors. The application deadline is November 15. The submission url is: https://muii.missouri.edu/BIBM2018-TravelAwardApp/

  • 1. Paper id and title
  • 2. Name, affiliation, and support letter from advisor or dept chair.
  • 3. Fully paid conference registration receipt (all applicants need to register the conference in order to apply for the student travel award, the application won’t be considered without a paid registration).


IEEE BIBM 2018 conference will take place at the hotel NH Collection Madrid Eurobuilding from December 3-6, 2018. The hotel is in the city's financial district, minutes from Paseo de la Castellana, one of the city's main avenues surrounded by restaurants and boutiques

Why stay at a Conference Hotel? You'll be in the center of conference activity, that's why! You'll be able to network easily with other conference attendees. You'll have a better conference experience overall. But there are other reasons that you need to consider before you look at a hotel outside the official BIBM 2018 housing block. The conference staff have taken their role of finding a conference site very seriously. They have looked at a number of locations and evaluated the needs of attendees as well as the need for conference meeting space. Based on a guaranteed percentage of attendees staying in official conference hotels, the hotels provide discounted rates from their normal charges. If the conference does not meet the contracted sleeping room commitment, the hotel in some cases can charge the association for the missing revenue. Unfilled rooms can cost the association thousands of dollars which can apply pressure to increase the conference registration fees to offset these costs. So, please support the conference and the association by staying at the official conference hotels. We think you will find the increased networking opportunities, quality hotel services and amenities, and proximity to the conference activities to be worth it!
