Recognizing the importance of student work, USENIX has developed the following programs:
Reduced membership dues allow students to join the advanced computing community and receive all USENIX member benefits, including online access to all of our conference proceedings (a very useful research tool).
USENIX conferences provide full-time students with the opportunity to attend USENIX technical sessions and tutorials at deeply discounted rates.
Student grants provide funding for full-time students to attend USENIX events. Please take a look at this page for information on open applications for upcoming events. If your research significantly overlaps with a conference topic, or if you are presenting a paper, this is definitely the way to attend for less.
Cash prizes are awarded to best papers for which a student is the lead author at USENIX conferences. Keep an eye out for our Calls for Papers (CFPs), and feel free to submit a paper!
USENIX seeks suggestions for special programs to sponsor, such as programming contests or workshops. If you have a good idea and are interested in organizing such an event, please contact us! Send an email with your ideas to Julie Miller.
Faculty: USENIX Campus Rep Program
The Campus Representative Program designates a faculty or staff member at a campus who represents USENIX and provides information to students about USENIX. They maintain a library of print and online USENIX publications, as well as having current conference information, Calls for Papers, and membership information available to students.
