Sponsors

Event Sponsorship and In-Cooperation

There are three ways in which SIGAPP can be involved with a technical meeting: as a “full sponsored”, “co sponsored” or as "in cooperation". From an applicant's perspective, the difference between applying for sponsorship/co-sponsorship and in-cooperation status is that the latter is far simpler to obtain because it does not entail any financial involvement or liability by SIGAPP.

Proceedings will be copyrighted by ACM and be in the Digital Library, unless specific agreements are in place with other co-sponsors.


Requesting Event Sponsorship or In-Cooperation with ACM/SIGAPP

ACM provides some guidelines and an online form (the TMRF) to request in-cooperation status. Below we provide a list of additional requirements that must be met by a conference seeking in-cooperation status, followed by a set of guidelines that will increase the chances that the SIGAPP Executive Committee will approve a request.
Note that you may not use the ACM or SIGAPP names or logos on materials promoting the conference (websites, CFPs, etc.) prior to approval of the TMRF.


The non-negotiable requirements are:

  • The meeting shall not be run by a for-profit organization (except in rare exceptions authorized by the SIG Governing Board Executive Committee and the SIGAPP Executive Committee)
  • Registration discount for SIGAPP members and ACM members must be equivalent to the 'member' discount offered, if any
  • Attendance policies of the meeting (e.g. open, invitation-only, etc.) must be specified.
  • A formal request (TMRF) must be made for every instance of a recurring event (i.e. approval for a given conference applies only to the single occurrence of the conference for which the TMRF was submitted.)
  • As required by the ACM, meeting organizers must provide, within three months of the event, a short report to the SIGAPP Executive Committee summarizing the event. The report should cover the number of papers submitted, the number of papers accepted, the number of attendees, and an outline of the conference budget. It should also contain a brief assessment of the success of the event.

Holding an Event co-sponsored by ACM/SIGAPP

A co-sponsored event is an event sponsored by another organization that wishes to have a formal connection with ACM/SIGAPP and its members. This arrangement implies no financial involvement from SIGAPP, and it is straightforward to obtain, provided that


  • ACM will assist the event organizers with overall conference arrangements and budget planning
  • ACM will assist the event organizers with hotel selection and contract negotiations
  • ACM will support financial transactions for the event with an option to coordinate registrations on-line with the conference accounts
  • The proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library
  • The announcement of the conference will be posted on the SIGAPP web site
  • The ACM and SIGAPP logos and name can be used on any publicity about the conference
  • The conference will be listed in the ACM calendar
  • Events sponsored by ACM/SIGAPP

Holding an Event In-Cooperation with ACM/SIGAPP

An In-cooperation conference is an event sponsored by another organization that wishes to have a formal connection with ACM/SIGAPP and its members. The requirements for SIGAPP in-cooperation status include the following:


  • The meeting cannot be sponsored by a for-profit organization; however, some forms of corporate funding are allowed. SIGAPP will not be financially responsible for the meeting.
  • In-cooperation events must have at least 5 SIGAPP members among Organizing Committee or Steering Committee members.
  • In-cooperation events must have an open call for participation and a clearly documented evaluation and review process.
  • In-cooperation events are encouraged to follow SIGAPP policies and procedures, and have to include in their website and call for papers a mandatory Anti-Harassment Policy.
  • In-cooperation events must have a special registration fee discount program for SIGAPP and ACM members. Registration costs should be reasonable; if there is a reduced registration rate, then SIGAPP members should be eligible for it.
  • A table is provided in the registration area for a display of ACM and SIGAPP membership and publication literature if needed.
  • In-cooperated conferences must include a link for SIGAPP registration on the webpage and registration form. Organizers can contact the ACM Headquarters (incoop@acm.org), to have SIGAPP membership materials sent directly to the conference location for display there.
  • Proof of liability insurance is provided by all sponsoring organizations.
  • Events In-Cooperation with ACM/SIGAPP

SAC Meetings

Over the past years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC), the primary SIGAPP Annual Conference, has become a primary forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world to interact and present their work. Each year the event is organized as a number of specialist tracks on various areas of computer applications. The Tracks define the conference theme each year.

RACS

RACS provides an excellent forum for addressing research issues of concern within the adaptive and convergent computing area. Adaptive and convergent computing concentrates on innovative solutions to complex problems in all areas of industry and sciences using adaptive and convergent techniques in computer science and engineering. It involves programming, software engineering, graphics, databases, wireless networks, security, distributed systems, operating systems and so on.

SIGAPP Student Travel Award Program

The SIGAPP Student Travel Award Program (STAP) was established to provide financial support for SIGAPP student members to attend SIGAPP primary conference (SAC) to present their accepted work. Student primary authors and co-authors are eligible to apply for these awards. The eligibility rules may vary year to year depending on funds availability. Applications are evaluated on a competitive basis.

Expenses eligible for coverage include conference registration fees, travel expenses to and from the conference, and accommodation expenses while attending SAC. Note that meal expenses will not be covered by these grants, neither will cost related to getting a visa to travel to the conference location. The award amounts vary year to year depending on type of travel (intercontinental or intra-continental) and the applicants pool and their needs. SIGAPP expects institutions to share costs in funding students travel to SAC.

Reimbursement is handled by ACM after the end of the conference. Recipients will received instructions from ACM on how to claim these awards.  Recipients need to keep original receipts for all eligible expenses as they are required for reimbursement.

Students may join SIGAPP for a very nominal fee ($8) and become eligible for this funding. Only SIGAPP student members are eligible for this award. Please see Join SIGAPP for more details.

SAC 2019 Travel Applications
