We would like SIGIR to be as inclusive a conference as possible and, in support of this effort, we are offering a few complimentary online registrations to those participating from least developed countries (https://www.un.org/development/desa/dpad/least-developed-country-category/ldcs-at-a-glance.html) as designated by United Nations.
In addition, anyone facing financial hardships or having other obstacles that prevent them from participating in the conference can request a discounted or free registration by filling out a form explaining their circumstances. We are also pleased to offer a limited amount of support for covering caregiver expenses to make it easier to attend the conference. These requests will be handled by the SIGIR DEI chairs on a case-by-case basis. Submit your applications through the following link: https://forms.gle/fgr2ZVYTvcAqe6Zk7
The deadline for applications is 4 June 2023. If you have any queries, please contact:
