Hotel and Travel Information for SIGCSE TS 2022

Registering for SIGCSE TS 2022

The 53rd ACM Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education Hybrid Event will be held at the Rhode Island Convention Center and Omni Providence Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island, USA.

  • Pre-Symposium Affiliated Events: March 2
  • Workshops: March 2, 4, and 5
  • Technical Symposium: March 2-5
  • Virtual Platform Opens: TBD

The SIGCSE TS 2022 organizing committee is excited to offer options for participants to participate virtually or travel to Providence and attend the conference in person. We hope to have an exciting and engaging experience for all participants, and hope very much to see many of you in person. Recognizing that participants need information to make decisions about travel and gathering, we will keep this site updated with information as it is available. Our registration system will allow you to switch your own registration between in-person and virtual participation, but keep in mind the discount dates. The cost for your new registration will be based on the date you change it, not the date when you first registered.

Health and Safety

The ACM SIGCSE TS 2022 committee is commited to providing our community with a conference that supports virtual and in-person participation. As the registration dates get closer, we will provide details on the platform for virtual attendees and what to expect if traveling to Providence.

Please know that we will adhere to ACM, ACM SIGCSE, CDC and Rhode Island Convention Center recommendations, guidelines, and health protocols. In particular, the SIGCSE Board is requiring all in-person attendees at the SIGCSE Technical Symposium 2022 in Providence, RI, USA, to show proof of full vaccination. They are not allowing exemptions at this time because there are opportunities for attendees to participate remotely.

Visas

Letters from ACM in support of visa applications:

ACM is able to provide visa support letters to attendees as well as authors with accepted papers, posters, or members of the conference committee. For visa support letters, please send all requests to supportletters@acm.org with the following information.

  1. Name and mailing address as it appears on your passport.
  2. The name of the conference you wish to attend.
  3. Registration confirmation number.
  4. If you are the author of any papers accepted for the conference, please provide the title.

Carbon Offsets

ACM SIGCSE makes it is easy for attendees to offset their carbon footprint to the ACM SIGCSE Technical Symposium through the registration process. Donations will be passed directly to Cool Effect, an organization that helps individuals and businesses develop practical and cost-effective solutions to slow, stop, and reduce the climate crisis. During the registration process, you will see a check box option that will allow you to make a donation to offset your emissions from attending the symposium. This contribution is optional and distinct from the registration fee and will appear as such on your registration receipt. Please consult your organization in advance to determine if the expense is reimbursable. If you need to use different credit cards for your registration and your donation, you can simply log in again after registering, update your registration, and pay with a second credit card. ACM will forward the names of the individuals that contribute along with the amount of their contribution to Cool Effect who will acknowledge the contribution to the individual donor for tax purposes. You can utilize the carbon offset calculator to make the appropriate donation based on travel and lodging.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation requests must be made by March 1, 2022 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. A processing fee of US$100 will be assessed for full rate registrations. A processing fee of US$25 will be assessed for reduced rate and virtual registrations. Regrettably, cancellations received after that date cannot be honored. The conference committee recognizes that sometimes last-minute cancellations can't be avoided due to weather, travel disruptions, and/or health issues. However, the conference incurs expenses for which it is liable based on registration counts. In-person registrants are strongly advised to purchase travel insurance to cover their non-refundable expenses. Also, registrants who find themselves unable to attend should be aware that registrations are transferable, but in general the conference committee cannot assist in finding an appropriate recipient.

In the event that the Symposium is cancelled due to circumstances beyond the organizers' control, refunds are not guaranteed. If refunds are issued, the amount will depend on the expenses and financial commitments incurred by the Symposium as of the cancellation date.
