The purpose of the conference attendance community grants round is to help the New Zealand Internet community participate in relevant conferences and events related to the development of the Internet.

For this funding round $15,000 was available for individuals or organisations to attend conferences where that attendance will assist in achieving InternetNZ’s objects and where it will grow the pool of expertise in particular areas in New Zealand.

ICST 2016 is intended to provide a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners throughout the world to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments and applications in the area of sensing technology. Dr Wang's accepted paper focuses on Internet-enabled distributed sensing applications.
