PANTS has a limited budget from which to provide support for travel. NOTE: If you wish to apply for travel reimbursement you MUST complete the Clemson University reimbursement form and give it to Jim Brown or Hui Xue by the end of the conference. If you are not a US citizen or permanent resident then you must additionally contact Hui Xue or April Haynes before September 2, 2011 to complete the approval process for reimbursement. Additionally, all conference participants that require reimbursement must register themselves as vendors with Clemson University (preferably before the conference begins to speed up the reimbursement process). There are instructions on how to do this on the reimbursement form.

PANTS is funded for the 2011-2012 academic year by grants, from the National Science Foundation (DMS-1101301) and the National Security Agency, which are hosted at Clemson University.
