SIGIR is the premier conference in the field of information search and retrieval. It attracts over 600 participants, the best talent in industry and academia, every year. The conference location rotates among North America, Asia and Australia, and Europe.

Next year, 2010, SIGIR will be held in Europe, in particular in Geneva, Switzerland. Corporate sponsorship allows the conference registration fees to be kept as low as possible, both to promote attendance and to offset the cost of events and services. Corporate sponsorship can also be used to support student attendance to the conference. Supporting SIGIR activities is an excellent way to reach a targeted audience and demonstrate your association with the best and brightest researchers in the field. It is a unique opportunity to highlight the support and involvement of sponsors in the increasingly important area of online and document searching. Your generosity will also help us expand SIGIR's program and events.

Based on the amount you donate, you will qualify for one of the following SIGIR Corporate Sponsorship levels (all amounts in Swiss Francs, SFR):
