The VAST Challenge committee chairs have also awarded him a travel grant to support his attendance at the conference from the NSF SEMVAST (Scientific Evaluation Methods for Visual Analytics Science and Technology) grant. This is a great achievement for a graduate student holding down a full time job and working on his graduate studies part time. Kudos to Mike and his employers for supporting his time with this.
