How to obtain SIGMOBILE sponsorship or in-cooperation status
SIGMOBILE welcomes the opportunity to sponsor, co-sponsor or grant
"in-cooperation" status to conferences, workshops and other technical meetings
that would be of interest to our members.
There are two ways in which SIGMOBILE can be involved with a technical
meeting: as a (co)sponsor or as "in cooperation". The difference
between (co)sponsorship and in-cooperation status is that the latter is
far simpler to obtain as it does not entail any financial involvement or
liability by SIGMOBILE.
Benefits: The benefits of SIGMOBILE (co)sponsorship or in-cooperation
In addition to the above, SIGMOBILE (co)sponsorship has the benefit
of financial and logistical support from SIGMOBILE, as well as the prestige
that comes with sponsorship by the world's leading scientific society in
this technical area.
Permission to use the prestigious ACM logo and SIGMOBILE name in all publicity
and publication materials
Advertisement in SIGMOBILE's quarterly publication, Mobile
Computing and Communications Review (MC2R), which is sent free
to all SIGMOBILE members.
Currently, a half-page advertisement may be placed free of charge
for meetings that SIGMOBILE is in-cooperation with, and a full-page ad
for meetings that SIGMOBILE (co)sponsors.
Note that MC2R has strict press deadlines which must be met. Contact
the Associate Editor, Jason Redi,
Exposure to a diverse range of multidisciplinary researchers, academics
and industrial practitioners working at the cutting edge of mobile computing
and communications technology
Process: If you would like SIGMOBILE (co)sponsorship or in-cooperation
status for a technical meeting, you need to read the ACM
guidelines and submit an ACM Technical Meeting Request Form (TMRF)
to the SIGMOBILE Conference Coordinator, Ravi
Jain. The Coordinator will request the approval of the SIGMOBILE
Committee and forward the TMRF to the ACM headquarters for approval.
However, while (co)sponsorship requires a complete
TMRF, in-cooperation status only requires a shorter
A few things to keep in mind:
ACM requires a certificate of insurance for both (co)sponsorship
and in-cooperation status if the original sponsor is not ACM. (This
is waived, however, if the sponsor of the conference is IEEE and in-cooperation
status is requested.) Please send in the certificate of insurance
with the TMRF.
It is expected that SIGMOBILE members will be able to register for the
meeting at the lowest registration rate for their respective appropriate
category (student/full-time, advance/on-site etc.)
Please fill out the TMRF completely to avoid delays, and submit
your request as early as possble.
If you have questions, please contact the SIGMOBILE Conference Coordinator.
