The organizing committee of the SP 2008 is pleased to announce the availability of funds to support student and junior faculty/researcher travel and registration to attend this year's symposium and workshops.

Grants are supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), and the U.S. Army Research Office (ARO).
Requests for funding will be accepted up until the last day of the conference as funding allows, but will begin making awards on April 18, 2008. To increase your chance, requests for funding should be sent to oakland08-generalchair @ ieee-security.org before April 15, 2008.
