To obtain reimbursement for travel expenses related to your presentation at SIGGRAPH 2004, you must submit a Course Presenter Expense Report within 90 days of completing travel. You are responsible for making your own travel and hotel arrangements. SIGGRAPH will reimburse a maximum of $500.00 for North American
travelers and $850.00 for non-North American travelers for each individual
presenter approved per course.
Authorized travelers should always try to travel as inexpensively as possible. Usually this means purchasing a partially or fully non-refundable airfare, and planning the trip as far in advance as possible.
If an authorized traveler chooses to travel to the conference by personal
automobile, SIGGRAPH will reimburse the traveler at 37.5 cents per mile, the current IRS mileage rate.
However, SIGGRAPH will only reimburse up to the cost of a round-trip
airline ticket from the starting destination to the conference city.
Automobile travelers may also receive reimbursement for parking.
SIGGRAPH will reimburse hotel room charges provided that the hotel bill is in the name of the authorized traveler.
Meals, bar tabs, phone charges, rental cars, fees, personal expenses, and guests are not reimbursable by SIGGRAPH 2004.
