Because of the current economic situation, many people in our community find themselves currently unemployed, and so would have difficulty attending SIGGRAPH 2014. We believe that in these times it is especially important that members of the SIGGRAPH community continue to come together to make connections, provide mutual inspiration, and continue to look forward and help create the future. So we are extending our lowest possible registration rates, the same as Student Member rates, to unemployed members of our community who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference.
To take advantage of this discount, you must be a member of ACM or ACM SIGGRAPH and agree to the terms listed below.
The SIGGRAPH 2014 Unemployed Discount Program has been created to diminish the financial impact on individuals currently unemployed and interested in participating in SIGGRAPH 2014 but for whom registration fees are prohibitive. Eligible individuals receive discounted rates on conference registration; all other costs such as travel, lodging, and incidentals are not covered in this program and are the responsibility of the individual. SIGGRAPH 2014 reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual if his or her fraud or misconduct affects the integrity of this program. This program is subject to change and/or cancellation at the discretion of SIGGRAPH 2014.
Subject to additional restrictions, the Unemployed Discount will be granted to those individuals who are members in good standing of ACM or ACM SIGGRAPH and are currently unemployed and interested in participating in SIGGRAPH 2014. Consultants and self-employed individuals are not eligible for this program. Standard SIGGRAPH 2014 registration rules and regulations apply.
