As part of NSF's commitment to maintain United States' research competitiveness in important areas of Science and Technology,
the organizers of ACM SIGSPATIAL 2011 are pleased to announce the 2011 ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS NSF Student Travel Grants to
encourage more computer science students both at the graduate and undergraduate levels to attend and participate in the ACM
SIGSPATIAL GIS 2011 Conference. Each travel award will cover up to $1000 USD towards conference-travel related costs. We
