3. Author Registration

Each DocEng paper must have at least one regular (non-student) registration by the author registration deadline (August 6th, 2019) for it to be presented at DocEng 2019 and be published in the DocEng 2019 proceedings. As long as one of the authors of the paper registers as either an ACM or SIGWEB member or a Non-member, then any student author(s) can register at student pricing. However, if a student author is the sole DocEng 2019 attendee for that paper, or if all the paper authors are students, then that student must register as either an ACM or SIGWEB member or Non-member. An author of multiple papers who is sole attendee and presenter of these papers requires a regular (non-student) registration for the first paper, and student registrations for the remaining papers.

ACM SIGWEB is kindly offering a total of USD 7000 in funding for Student Travel Awards. These awards are intended for student authors who have papers accepted in any of the tracks (full papers, short papers, application notes) and who attend the conference and personally present their research. SIGWEB Student Travel Awards typically range in value from USD 250 to USD 750.

Student awards are intended to cover a portion only of the student’s overall expenses. The sizes of the awards in general will depend on the number of qualified applicants, and the amount of individual awards may vary depending on the distance travelled and the kind and ranking of the papers.

Students may submit applications prior to learning whether or not their papers have been accepted. However, travel awards will only be given to students who have an accepted paper and who will be presenting that work themselves.

Applications for these awards should be submitted as soon as possible. To apply for a SIGWEB Student Travel Award, the student should submit the following:

You should apply by email to and include the information detailed in the SIGWEB Student Travel Award application form. Applications must be submitted by the stated time. Late applications will not be considered.

  2. The text body should include the title of the paper and the name of the contact author (if applicable) and the name of the person or organisation sending the wire.
