Computer Science has many faculty, staff, and students who travel for UNC business, more than most other departments in the College. In order to assist you in the most effective and efficient way, your first step is simply to send an email to email@example.com letting us know of your hope to travel as soon as you know.
We can take care of everything, but we need to have enough notice, especially for international travel. ALL travel must go through an approval process in advance. In addition, due to the UNC policy requiring an international travel waiver and the time required to get a visa for many of our students, less than one month’s advance notice does not guarantee that we can make it happen. This past quarter, at least three students could not attend conferences due to the time it took to attempt to procure their visa.
STUDENTS: As soon as you submit a paper for acceptance at a conference, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know of your hope to travel. If you wait until the paper has been accepted, that is too late to ensure your attendance in person.
FACULTY: As soon as you know you are sponsoring a student to attend a conference, please send an email to email@example.com letting us know. We can take it from there. For your own travel, the same UNC policies and procedures apply, so just send that same email to us.
Thank you for helping us to ensure that your future travel plans and those of your students can happen.
