The 2023 ACM SIGIR Conference is a hybrid in-person/virtual conference. We encourage in-person participations, and we provide live streaming for most presentation sessions, including ceremonies, keynotes, panels, tutorials, and workshops.

Author Registration Amendment (dated 5/25): The author registration policy described here is effective immediately. Student author will apply student registration rate. Each accepted paper should have at least one in-person registration and present at the conference in-person. Conference papers (full, short, demo, perspectives, resource, reproducibility, and SIRIP tracks) should register either SIGIR Passport or SIGIR Main Conference. Tutorial, doctoral consortium, and workshop papers should at least cover the associated tutorial day and workshop day, respectively.

One participant requires one registration only, if he/she is the author of multiple accepted papers.

For student authors who registered in non-student rate, the price difference will be refunded to the same credit card in a couple of weeks. For student travel grants awardee, no action is required. Contact conference secretariat if you need any assistance.
