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 of the early registration fees for whatever registration category the presenter or volunteer chooses, according to the following table. For students, the percentage discount applies to the student registration fees.

Category Eligibility Discount
Courses Up to four presenters per full-day course, two presenters per half-day course, and one presenter per tutorial. Some presenters are also eligible for travel reimbursement. 100%
Emerging Technologies Up to four presenters per Emerging Technologies demo. 100%
Papers, Computer Animation Festival, and Art Gallery One presenter per piece. 50%
Panels, Special Sessions, Sketches & Posters, and Educators Program One presenter per piece in Sketches & Posters and the Educators Program; up to five presenters per Panel or Special Session (typically four presenters and a moderator/organizer). 25%
Jurors Jurors and advisory-board members. 50%
Volunteers, Student Volunteers, and XSV Participants Volunteers with a full-time work commitment at the conference. 100%
Conference Committee, CAG, and EC Conference Committee members for this year's and next year's conferences, members of the Conference Advisory Group, and ACM SIGGRAPH's Executive Committee. 100%
Each registration discount will be accompanied by an invitation to the Contributor Reception.

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

Presenters and volunteers will receive a single-use code for appropriate reduction of the early-registration fee.
