Cancellation Policy

Cancellation requests must be made by February 26, 2020 Tuesday, March 10, at 11:59 PM PDT.

A processing fee of US$100 will be assessed as per the list below. Regrettably cancellations received after the cancellation date cannot be honored. The conference committee recognizes that sometimes last-minute cancellations can’t be avoided due to weather, travel disruptions, and/or health issues. However, the conference incurs expenses for which it is liable based on registration counts. Registrants are strongly advised to purchase travel insurance to cover their non-refundable expenses. Also, registrants who find themselves unable to attend should be aware that registrations are transferable, but in general the conference committee cannot assist in finding an appropriate recipient.

  • The conference refund policy (https://sigcse2020.sigcse.org/attendees/#registration - a refund with $100 processing fee) will be extended through Tuesday, March 10, at 11:59 PM PDT. To process your cancellation, please email registration@sigcse2020.org with the subject line “Cancellation request.”

  • Individuals who are explicitly banned from attending because of official government travel bans will be issued full refunds by request to registration@sigcse2020.org with the subject line “Government Travel Restriction.” Requests must be received by Tuesday, March 10, at 11:59 PM PDT.


Regarding Visas

ACM is able to provide visa support letters to attendees as well as authors with accepted papers, posters, or members of the conference committee.

For Visa support letters, please email all requests to the Office of SIG Services at supportletters@acm.org. The information below should be included with the request:

  • Name and mailing address as it appears on your passport.
  • The name of the conference you wish to attend.
  • Registration confirmation number.
  • If you are the author of any papers accepted for the conference, please provide the title.
  • Fax number and/or e-mail address of where the invitation letter should be sent.

Those requesting a letter should allow 7-10 business days to receive it. All requests are handled in the order they are received.


Conference Hotels

Hotel cutoff date for registration rates is February 8th.

Our conference hotels are currently sold out. However, some rooms may open up as cancellations occur before the reservation cutoff date. The reservation cutoff date has been extended until February 27th at the Hyatt, and February 17th at the Doubletree Hilton and the Marriott Courtyard. Hotels area adding rooms to our conference room blocks at their discretion, but be advised these may be higher than the originally quoted conference rate. Some hotels may also have rooms outside of our conference room block at regular rates.
