Recognition Policy for Presenters & Volunteers

The Recognition Policy for Presenters & Volunteers is designed to acknowledge and show appreciation for all contributions to the conference. The basic recognition policy is based on a percentage discount off the early (ACM SIGGRAPH Member) registration fees for whatever registration category the presenter or volunteer chooses (regardless of when registration is completed), according to the following table. To register as a student and receive a discount off the student member registration fee, the contributor must be a current student member of ACM SIGGRAPH.

Each presenter gets the highest discount available without aggregating discounts for multiple presentations. Discounts are ONLY transferable to an individual who is a co-contributor or co-presenter of the work and recognized as such in the SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 Program and Buyer's Guide. Names of all co-contributors or co-presenters must be submitted to SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 via the Online Submission System.

If a presenter's employer is willing to pay for registration, SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 encourages the presenter to waive the recognition discount. Any overall savings goes to enhance the overall attendee experience at the conference.

Implementation Details
Presenters and volunteers will receive a single-use code for appropriate reduction of the early-registration fee. Discount codes and instructions for online registration will be sent via email in October.
