Registration Policy

At least one non-student registration (full or main) is required for each paper presented at the main conference. At least one non-student registration is required for each workshop paper presented.

At least one presenter per accepted poster/demo must register for the conference.

Student registrations are available to full-time students only. Students must show proof of student status upon their arrival.

If registration is canceled before the cancellation deadline, a refund of 50% of the registration fee paid will be given. No refund will be given after the cancellation deadline or for no shows.

Note: ACM CCS has not historically offered any discount to ACM members for registration in one-day tutorial/workshop.
