The University of Toulouse, founded in 1229, is the fourth largest in France, and one of the oldest in Europe.

If you’re a student who wants to attend the MobileHCI 2021 and need help funding your travel, you can apply for one of the following travel grants.
In recognition of Gary Marsden’s contributions and inspiration in HCI4D, ACM SIGCHI established Gary Marsden Student Development Fund in July 2015. The purpose is to support growth of HCI in developing worlds by sponsoring SIGCHI student members who are postgraduate students from and currently based in developing countries to attend HCI relevant events. For those who are currently not student members of SIGCHI, you can apply online to become a member before submitting the application. More information about the Gary Marsden Student Development Fund.
Note: The application submission deadlines are 15th of February, May, August and November each year.
The SIGCHI Student Travel Grant (SSTG) program is intended to enable students who lack other support opportunities to attend CHI and other SIGCHI sponsored or co-sponsored conferences. This travel grant is intended to support students whose intention is to present at MobileHCI 2020, not just attend. The goal is to pre-approve students for grants before a conference’s earliest submission deadline so that if a student gets a submission accepted, that student can count on having a grant awarded for travel to the conference.
For visa support letters, refer all requests to email@example.com. Please allow up to 10 business days to receive a letter. All requests are handled in the order they are received.
ACM does not provide letters for transport of vendor or presenter equipment. ACM suggests shipping the materials insured to the conference facility.
