If you need to pay by wire transfer:

  1. Log to the registration site and fill in up to the "Registration Summary" page, that's to say everything except the payment;
  2. Save a pdf copy of the "Registration Summary" page with your browser and send it by mail to us sigir2019-registration sigir2019-registration@poleia.lip6.fr
  3. Cancel the registration so as to skip the payment step (you just have to click on the [Cancel] button);
  4. When we receive the copy of your Registration Summary, we will finalize this registration with the information given in the Registration Summary. We will then e-mail to you the amount due and the bank coordinates of ACM so that you can initiate the wire transfer. When we receive from ACM the fulfillment of the payment, we will approve the registration. The wire transfer should be issued within one week from the registration date.

Note that wire transfers may take up to 14 days to process your registration.

On-site Registration

On-site registration will be available at the registration desk during SIGIR 2019. 

NOTE:  To register on-site at ACM SIGIR 2019, you must use your own laptop to register online once the site re-opens on Sunday, July 21. The registration staff at the desk will then issue your name badge and conference packet. 

No cash payment will be accepted when registering on-site.

Student Registration

You must be a full time student in an accredited undergraduate, masters or graduate program. The student rate is available only to those who have student status at the time of the conference.  You will be required to upload a digital version of your student ID at registration and to present your student ID as you check in. Your student ID must be valid at the time you check in at the registration desk.

Student Luncheon

The ACM SIGIR Executive Committee will host a Student Lunch during the main conference.  Only those with Student registration (and others by invitation only) may register for and attend this event.  There is no cost to attendees, but you should RSVP in advance during your registration process, since the number of places is limited (first-come, first-served; see registration form).

Diversity and Inclusion Luncheon

This year the ACM SIGIR Executive Committee is again hosting a Diversity and Inclusion Lunch to provide a forum for community members to learn about and discuss issues related to diversity and inclusion.  It is open to anyone, and has a nominal additional fee (9 €).  If interested, please register in advance during your registration, since the number of places is limited (first-come, first-served; see registration form).

Guest Banquet Tickets

Guest banquet tickets for unregistered friends or family are available at the time you register. Tickets are € 100 each.

Confirmation

The online registration system will send you an email confirmation automatically  when  your credit card payment has been successfully processed.

Receipts

The online registration system is set up so that you can print out your receipt yourself.  To do that, in the confirmation email you received, click the link "Review, change or update your registration".  This will bring you to your registration receipt, and from there, select the link "Print your registration".

Changes to Registration

You may change your registration personal/profile information and some program choices prior to the start of the conference, up until the end of the late registration period.  Any costs for updated items will be those for the registration period in which you are making the updates, not your initial registration period (if different).

To make changes:  In the confirmation email you received, click the link "Review, change or update your registration".  This will bring you to your registration receipt, and from there, select the link "Manage your registration" to make the desired changes.

Cancellations

Requests for registration cancellation must be made in writing and emailed to sigir2019-registration@poleia.lip6.fr. Requests received during the early registration period will be eligible for a 100% refund; during the regular registration period will be eligible for a 50% refund; and during or after the late registration period no refund will be possible (except in cases of visa denial, below).  All refunds are likely to be processed after the end of the event. Refunds will be issued back to your credit card.

If you are cancelling because you were denied a visa and you applied for your visa on or before Friday June 14, 2019 (UPDATED), we will refund your registration fees even after the cancellation deadline.  Such refund requests must be received within one week of conference closing with accompanying documents showing visa denial.  Applying for a visa after the above deadline and not getting an answer in time does not qualify you for a late refund.

At least one author of each accepted paper (of any type) is required to attend the event and present the paper: no request of cancellation will thus be honored unless another co-author is registered for the event.

Requesting Visa Support Letters

ACM is able to provide visa support letters to attendees as well as authors with accepted papers, posters, or members of the conference committee.

Please follow the instruction on this page once your registration is complete
