This online registration tool will accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express, and we greatly appreciate attendees using one of these forms of payment. If using one of these forms of payment is not possible, send a note to sosp09-registration@acm.org.

What is the early bird deadline?

September 1st is the deadline for early registration. Note that the hotel cut-off date is a little bit later, on September 10th. This means that after that date the hotel will start releasing rooms set aside for SOSP attendees, which means you will not be guaranteed getting a room at the conference hotel.

Can I register on-site?

On-site registration will be possible but only with a credit card. We will not be prepared to deal with cash.

What are the SOSP 2009 conference fees?

How can I get a visa support letter?

ACM policy dictates that support for visa requests be handled/initiated through ACM headquarters. We received the following information from ACM as to how to proceed.

The Association for Computing Machinery does not issue formal invitation letters for visas. We can however issue a visa support letter. For visa support letters, please send all requests to supportletters@acm.org with the following information:

1. Name and mailing address as it appears on your passport
2. The name of the conference you wish to attend
3. Registration confirmation number
4. If you are the author of any papers accepted for the conference, please provide the title
5. Fax number

My question isn't answered above. Who should I contact?
