The American Automatic Control Council (AACC) is offering funds to partially offset the expense of dependent care for registrants at the American Control Conference (ACC) 2023. Limited funds are available, which will be allocated not to exceed $500 per applicant. Highest priority will be given to conference registrants who will be presenting a paper(s), or in a workshop or special session.
how to apply
ACC attendees who would like to request dependent care funds should apply for pre-approval by April 15, 2023 and awards will be announced by May 1, 2023. Allowable expenses include care services required for children or other dependents incurred specifically due to conference participation. Normal, on-going dependent-care services are not allowable.
local care options
For information purposes only, not as a recommendation or endorsement from ACC or AACC, local childcare may be able to be arranged through providers including care.com, Bright Horizons, and College Sitters and Nannies. It is the responsibility of parents to choose their own providers.
Reimbursement will be distributed after the conference. Requesters of these funds must submit the reimbursement request form after the conference and by August 1, 2023 to verify expenses. Distributions will be made first to recipients who have been pre-approved for the reimbursement, and any remaining funds will be then distributed to other conference registrants who have applied.
