SIGOPS Sponsorship Policy

SIGOPS is happy to co-sponsor or cooperate with quality conferences on topics related to its mission.  Details on requesting either co-sponsorship or "in cooperation with" can be found in the ACM Conference Manual.  Briefly, information for "in cooperation with" can be found here.  For sponsorship or co-sponsorhsip, first fill out the PAF (preliminary approval form) and further information is available here.

We recognize that co-sponsorship and cooperation provides both benefits and responsibilities to both parties. SIGOPS will advertise the events co-sponsored and in cooperation with through its Web site and its SIGOPS-ANNOUNCE monthly posting.

In addition to following the ACM policies on co-sponsorship and in-cooperation, SIGOPS requires the following from the conference.

For "in cooperation with ACM SIGOPS", the conference will:

  • mention "In cooperation with ACM SIGOPS" in any advertisement and proceedings of the event (including a link to the SIGOPS Web site in electronic documents)
  • publish the proceedings in the ACM Digital Library and in the next SOSP CD-ROM, unless it is explicitly disallowed by the proceedings publisher.
For "co-sponsored by ACM SIGOPS", the conference will:
  • Mention "In cooperation with ACM SIGOPS" in any advertisement and proceedings of the event (including a link to the SIGOPS Web site in electronic documents).
  • Publish the proceedings in the ACM Digital Library and in the next SOSP CD-ROM.
  • Nominate one of the SIGOPS officers, or their designate, as a member of the conference steering committee.
  • Make it easy for people to join SIGOPS, e.g., by offering membership with non-member registration fees or by including a check-box on the registration form.
