We invite you to support the 2018 ACM International Conference on Interactive Surfaces and Spaces (ISS2018). This is an ideal way to demonstrate your organization's interest and commitment to the field of interactive surfaces and spaces, and publicize this support to many leaders and students in the fields. Corporate support is typically used to permit a greater number of students to attend ISS at reduced fees without artificially increasing the general registration, and to allow student volunteers to receive complimentary registration. Sponsorship can also be targeted to particular event or activity at the conference.

Four support levels (Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze) are available, as well as opportunities to support specific conference events. Corporate sponsorship is very important to the conference, and the conference committee ensures that these contributions are well recognized. We list the benefits and costs below. If you are interested in supporting ISS 2018, please contact our sponsorship chairs.

Sponsorship Opportunities

We have 4 levels of sponsorship: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. In addition, there are a variety of opportunities to sponsor specific elements of the conference (and get further exposure for your company or organization). Details are below.

Packages are negotiable in regards to the items they include and can be adjusted to specific needs. Note that all amounts are listed in USD ($), but equivalents in other currencies are welcome.
