Become a Sponsor

The ACM Special Interest Group on the Design of Communication (ACM SIGDOC)’s 2019 Conference is an excellent opportunity to promote your organization to an international audience of researchers and practitioners. The conference will be held in Portland on October 4-6, 2019 and will feature a growing number of ties between academia and industry. We have a brand new sponsorship model that will help your organization build ties with both the SIGDOC and local communities.

One major change to this year’s conference is that we are devoting much of the Friday of the conference to our brand new Industry Day. That day will feature reduced registration costs for students and practitioners and will potentially feature recruiting events with students, workshops with industry partners, and industry-focused research presentations.

Oh and one more important note: These levels are flexible! If you come up with other ideas for how you want to work with SIGDOC, we will work with you to make your ideas a reality.

For more information or to become a sponsor, contact Jordan Frith, Associate Professor, University of North Texas, at Jordan.frith@unt.edu.
