Implementation details

Contributors will receive a single code for the appropriate number of registrations listed above. Discount codes and instructions for online registration will be available end of May.

Each contributor gets the highest discount available without aggregating discounts for multiple presentations. Discounts are ONLY transferable to an individual who is a co-contributor or co-presenter of the work and recognized as such on the SIGGRAPH 2020 web site.

If a contributor’s employer is willing to pay for registration, SIGGRAPH encourages the contributor to waive the recognition discount. Any overall savings goes to enhance the overall attendee experience at the conference.
