Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Microsoft, we will be able to offer stipends to some participants to help partially offset the costs of attending PETS 2012.

The first deadline for applications is May 14, 2012, and the deadline for those who missed the first deadline is June 1, 2012.

To apply for a stipend, send email to with a subject line of "PETS-2012 stipend application" including the following information:

There is no guarantee that we will have enough money to fund all applicants. We plan to spend the money in a way that best advances the field of privacy enhancing technologies, through a combination of encouraging new blood as well as experienced researchers.

Applications received after June 1 will be considered on a first-come first-served basis if we have any money left over.
