Registration

Online registration is closed. Anyone wishing to attend the conferences must register onsite.

SIGITE Membership Discount

Please be aware that there is a significant discount on registration rates for SIGITE and/or ACM members. For example, early member registration is $290 and early non-member registration is $340, a savings of $50. SIGITE membership costs $20, which makes becoming a member worthwhile. Unfortunately, the registration system does not allow you to become a member as you register. If you wish to obtain the cheaper member rates, you must become a member using the ACM system prior to registering for the conference.

Conference Excursion

Update as of September 3, 2015: The conference excursion has sold out. Our apologies to anyone who does not already have tickets!

This year conference attendees will have the opportunity to participate in an excursion immediately after the chairs’ workshop and prior to the start of the conference. Participation in the excursion requires the purchase of a ticket and is not included in the conference registration fee.

The Chicago Highlights Tour will allow participants to see historic landmarks, the hottest attractions, and classic movie locations aboard a Chicago trolley or double-decker bus.  More information about this entertaining and informative two-hour tour can be found on the conference excursion page. The tour is an excellent way to orient yourself in downtown Chicago and plan your activities for the remainder of the evenings.

The tour will take place on Wednesday, September 30th at 6:30 pm, and the $30 charge includes beer, wine, soda, water, and snacks. The registration system allows you to select extra tickets for the tour so that people accompanying you to Chicago can join in the fun.

Registration Rates

Early online registration is available until August 31, 2015. Late  online registration begins September 1, 2015 and runs through September 26, 2015. Registration after September 26, 2015 must be on-site.

Please note that the registration deadline for authors is August 1, 2015. Paper, lightning talk, and poster submissions that do not have any author registered for the conference will be pulled from the proceedings. Panels must have all authors registered for the conference in order to be published.

Attendance at both conferences, the chairs’ workshop on Wednesday, the conference reception on Thursday, the conference lunch on Friday, and any other workshops are included in the price listed. The registration system allows you to purchase extra reception and lunch tickets for people accompanying you to Chicago. Extra reception tickets are $60 per person, and extra lunch tickets are $25 per person.
