SIGITE Membership Discount

Please be aware that there is a significant discount on registration rates for SIGITE and/or ACM members. For example, early member registration is $400 and early non-member registration is $450, a savings of $50. SIGITE membership costs $20, which makes becoming a member worthwhile. Unfortunately, the registration system does not allow you to become a member as you register. If you wish to obtain the cheaper member rates, you must become a member using the ACM system prior to registering for the conference.
