<< Diversity is achieved when the individuals around the table are drawn from a variety of backgrounds and experience, leading to a breadth of viewpoints, reasoning, and approaches (also referred to as “the who”). Equity is achieved by supporting the participation of marginalized communities in computing as well as by promoting impartiality and fairness within the procedures, processes, and distribution of resources and systems by the ACM (also referred to as “the why”). Inclusion is achieved when the environment is characterized by behaviors that welcome and embrace diversity. (“the how”) >>
The ACM Web Conference series is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). In accordance with ACM’s policy, we intend to celebrate the similarities and differences that make our community so innovative and productive by opening up and widening access to the entire conference program of The ACM Web Conference 2022.
To reach this goal, we are happy to propose The Web Conference 2022 DEI program, which is also partially supported by a specific donation by Google. This program offers full FREE registrations to the entire conference week and it is particularly suitable for authors of accepted papers. This second round of application is NOT suitable for authors, but instead, tailored for the researchers from the Global South who had little or no previous experiences of The Web Conference.
The number of available DEI tickets is limited. Each application will be carefully studied by the organizing committee.
If you apply to this programme, please wait to be notified of the decision before registering for the conference.
Do not hesitate to contact the Committee at dei2022[at]thewebconf.org. We stay available to answer any questions!
Applications are to be sent by email to dei2022[at]thewebconf.org, with the following information inserted directly in the body of your mail (please, do NOT attach any files):
- Email Address
- Country of residence
- Short statement written in English (up to 2000 characters including whitespaces) containing any information that is relevant to justify and motivate your participation in the DEI program. Note that this statement will be primarily used to assess your eligibility
2nd Round for NON-authors
- Application deadline: April 8th, 2022
- Decision notification: April 13th, 2022
As DEI applications may contain sensitive data, we wish to stress that all information concerning these applications will be handled according to the GDPR European regulation. In particular, application emails will NOT be transmitted and will be destroyed at the end of the process.
