For Conference Organizers

ACM and SIGs (Special Interest Groups) lend the name of the organization to conferences which are fully sponsored by other nonprofit incorporated organizations. Such cooperation is intended primarily for publicity and to encourage Association members to participate by contributing papers and attending technical sessions. Cooperation specifically excludes financial participation, responsibility, or liability on the part of ACM. Please see the SIG Volunteer Resources page for more information on how to apply for such cooperation.
