Student Award for AIM 2024

The Organizing Committee of AIM 2024 is pleased to announce the Student Award Program which aims to encourage students to attend the conference in person and to present their research outcomes. The awards will be used to offset partial cost for students’ conference expense. The amount awarded will depend on the number of applicants by the deadline and the total available funds and will be specified in the notice letter.      

13 June 2024 Update: 

The student support award has so far been granted to a great number of students to cover their registration fees. Currently, we still have some ASME funds left, which allow us to support students with ASME memberships from universities both in and outside the USA.   

We have just received confirmation of NSF funds to support students from universities in US to attend AIM 2024. As such, we are in the position to take more applications of students (no requirement of society memberships) from American universities and also applications of students with ASME membership from universities both in and outside US. Interested students can contact Conference Student Chair, Prof. Minghui Zheng ( for more details.
