Specialized Conferences Development Fund Overview

This page links to a description of the SIGCHI Specialized Conferences Development Fund for sponsored and co-sponsored conferences. From this page you can also access examples of prior applications and final reports on each project.


This page (which was last updated in March 2019) describes the objective and process involved in applying for the ACM SIGCHI Specialized Conferences  Development Fund. This funding mechanism was first an experiment from 2015 – 2018. As of 2019 this is part of the 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 budgets and will be reviewed regularly by SIGCHI. Conferences are expected to break even and not return a surplus. We request conference steering chairs to make submissions several months in advance of when the funds are needed.
