This page (which was last updated in March 2019) describes the objective and process involved in applying for the ACM SIGCHI Specialized Conferences Development Fund. This funding mechanism was first an experiment from 2015 – 2018. As of 2019 this is part of the 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 budgets and will be reviewed regularly by SIGCHI. Conferences are expected to break even and not return a surplus. We request conference steering chairs to make submissions several months in advance of when the funds are needed.
Once a project has been approved it will be added to this page. Approval comes from the SIGCHI Conferences Board (Nov 2016) and previously from the SIGCHI core CMC (Jul 15 – Oct’16).
This is only one type of Conference Support SIGCHI offers. Our funding page describes all the different types of Conference Support, Community Support and Student Support SIGCHI can offer to members, conferences and student members.
