Do advisors typically fund PhD students for travel to events other than academic conferences? Examples include:

  • Seminars at other universities so the student can promote their
    research
  • A Technical Program Committee (TPC) meeting
  • An industry conference where the student hasn’t published anything but is there to promote their work in a talk or demo

These events are not directly related to the bottom line of publishing papers, but are helpful for the overall career of the students.
