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.

Hybrid Experience

Program content will be delivered in a hybrid modality, with the virtual component hosted on Pathable. Specifically, presenters may participate either in-person or remotely. Selected presentations will be live-streamed to remote participants, including the keynote addresses, panels, special sessions, and nifty assignments. All papers, lightning talks, demos, and posters will have a pre-recorded video on the online platform. Authors of in-person presentations that are not live-streamed will be online at specific times in the Authors’ Corner, where they will be available to discuss their work.

On-Site Student Volunteers

Student volunteers are an important part of the SIGCSE Symposium and have been for many years. Student volunteers are on-site attendees attending the physical conference who are full-time undergraduate or graduate students. Each volunteer works for 9 hours (or less, as assigned), helping with various conference management activities. You’ll interact with the conference organizers and presenters and will meet other students from all over the world. More information about the experience, the benefits, and how to sign up are provided here.

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.
  5. Fax number and/or e-mail address of where the invitation letter should be sent

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.

Roommate Database

The SIGCSE TS 2022 Roommate Finder database’s purpose is to allow SIGCSE attendees to search for other attendees wanting to share rooms. The database is an information resources only, the rest is up to you. This database stores your information, whether you have a hotel room or not, and then allows you to search for a roommate. Once you and a roommate agree to share, please fill out the form filled to you to be removed from the active list of roommate seekers.

KidsCamp

Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty of travel and lack of vaccine availability for children under 5, we are unable to offer Kids’ Camp this year.

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.
