SIGIR 2024 Sponsorship Benefits and Terms

On behalf of the Organizing Committee for the 47th International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval (SIGIR 2024), we invite you to participate in the conference as a sponsor or exhibitor.

SIGIR is a major international forum for presentations of the latest state-of-the-art research and demonstration of new systems and methods for connecting people with information: from search engines, recommender systems, digital libraries, and social network technology to compelling applications in health, legal, educational, and other domains, research at SIGIR spans academia, industry, and government.

As a top-tier international conference affiliated with the main computer science professional organization, the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), SIGIR is attended by many of the world’s top researchers and practitioners who work in research areas that include information retrieval, recommendation, machine learning, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, human-computer interaction, and more. The ACM SIGIR Conference is the gathering place for current and future leaders and innovators from all over the world to discuss and present the state of the art in connecting people with information.

The conference also hosts top Ph.D. students from the most prestigious institutions in computer and information science, and will host a number of events bringing together academia, industry, and public sectors.

Our sponsorship options offer a range of different ways for you to become part of this amazing event. Apart from different sponsorship levels with tailored benefits we are also open to individual suggestions such as the sponsorship of specific sessions and social events.

We look forward to hearing from you and to seeing you in Washington, D.C. in 2024!
