REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS

Dear SPLC’20 participant, this year the registration model is different from previous years. The Steering Committee and the Organization Committee have worked hard and in conjunction with the generous support of our sponsors, we were able to significantly reduce the registration fees. Please read the following instructions carefully prior to starting the registration process in the link at the bottom of the page.

 

Registration fees in USD

The registration to the conference will grant you access to all the events associated to SPLC’20.

 

Type of fee (in USD DOLLARS)

Free

Golden rule: Each accepted paper in the following tracks must have exactly one registration of type “Paper” :

  • Research
  • Industry
  • Challenge cases
  • Challenge solutions
  • Contributions to workshops (VariVolution, REVE, MODEVAR,  WEESR)
  • Journal first
  • Demonstrations and tools

 Note: Students with papers accepted to the doctoral symposium, workshop organizers, and tutorial organizers have received their specific registration instructions and do not need to follow the standard registration process described in this page. 

If you are not a member of ACM, we strongly advise you to look at the membership options and their prices and, if it is convenient to you, become a member before you register. Please consult the options in the following link: https://www.acm.org/membership/membership-options

 

Registration example

This section presents a fictitious scenario to illustrate the registration process.

Sally is a professor and ACM member whose group got 3 papers accepted (in the tracks named above) which she co-authored as follows:

  • Paper 7, with John (student ACM member).
  • Paper 11, with Lisa (student non-ACM member) and Mark (student non-ACM member). 
  • Paper 13, with Matt (a professional ACM member) and Jane (a professional non-ACM member). 

Notice that 3 registrations of “Paper” type are required. Assuming that all will attend and that they pay before the Early deadline, an option that minimizes the registration of their collective fees is:

  • Sally registers Paper 7 and Paper 13, for which she will pay 2 x 75 USD = $150 USD.
  • John registers as an ACM member, thus his fees are $0.00 USD (free).
  • Lisa registers Paper 11, for which she will pay $75.00 USD.
  • Mark decides to save some money and becomes an ACM member before registration, thus his registration fees are $0.00 USD (free).
  • Matt registers as an ACM member, thus his fees are $0.00 USD (free).
  • Jane registers as professional non-ACM member, her fees will be $50.00 USD.

 

Registration for Workshops and Tutorials

The registration to SPLC’20 is all inclusive. Nonetheless, we ask you to please indicate the tutorials and workshops that you plan to attend. This information will help us to configure the conference platform to better suit the needs of the activities.

 

Registering as an ACM member — Membership Validity Check

Registration in both categories of ACM member (student and professional) requires a valid membership. Cvent, the registration management system of ACM, will check the membership against the forwarding email address stored in the member’s record. Thus for SPLC’20 registration please enter the forwarding address of your ACM membership.

For example, if Sally’s ACM email address is sally@acm.org and her forwarding email address is sally77@myprovider.com. Thus, Sally must use her email address sally77@myprovider.com for her registration to SPLC’20.

Tip: To make sure everything is OK with your ACM forwarding address, you can send yourself an email to your @acm.org account and check that it is forwarded correctly.

ATTENTION!!! Please be aware that the first choice that you will make in the registration process is to select between ACM Member Registration and Non-Member Registration. Hence, please select ACM Member Registration option only when you are not creating a registration of “Paper” type.

 

Payment method

Cvent provides a secure electronic payment system. The only payment method accepted for SPLC registration is by credit card. Please make sure you have all the information at hand that your bank may request to process your electronic transactions.  

 

What happens after I register?

Cvent will send a confirmation and invoice email with your registration details. Once your registration is verified by our team, we will send you an email with the link and details to create your Whova account. It should take not more than two working days to receive our email after your registration.
