- Student applicants also need to ask their advisor to send an e-mail to the Student Travel Award Co-chairs (email@example.com) with the subject line “ASPLOS Student Travel Status Confirmation for <Name>.” The email should state that you are a full-time student pursuing an MS/Ph.D. or an undergraduate researcher in the areas covered by ASPLOS. The advisor is also welcome to comment on the potential broader impact of making an award to you, e.g., if you belong to an underrepresented group, or if the candidate is unable to attend without a substantial travel grant.
- Applicants may also wish to apply for support from SIGPLAN at http://www.sigplan.org/PAC.

The Greater Williamsburg is an area that combines a rich slice of American Colonial and Revolutionary history. It features Colonial Williamsburg, a 301-acre living-history museum where actors in period costume depict daily Colonial life in the streets, stores and workshops. It includes Jamestown Settlement, the first successful English settlement on the mainland of North America, founded on May 14, 1607. It also has Yorktown, where a victory by George Washington and French Fleet effectively ended the American Revolutionary War.
Entertainment and Others
“In addition to historic attractions, there are world-class roller coasters in Busch Gardens and other theme parks, Broadway-style shows in our theaters, and a sunset voyage on a pirate ship, among other tours. Walk along the beach, and bike the miles of scenic trails along the Colonial Parkway. Raise your glass in a vineyard or working microbrewery, like the award-winning Alewerks, and toast the modern-day conveniences of 18th-century museums and art galleries.” (Visit Williamsburg)
