Note: The conference venue “Lotte Hotel Seoul” is different from “Lotte World Hotel” (very far away) or “Lotte City Hotel” (about 20-25 minutes walking away). The conference will hold in “Lotte Hotel Seoul” near City Hall and the Euljiro-1(il) ga subway station (https://goo.gl/maps/kwh8U9FJoT72).

The SIGMM community is promoting the use of Social Media in two directions. On the one hand, official SIGMM channels on Social Media are being frequently used for dissemination. On the other hand, the SIGMM Executive Committee, in coordination with the SIGMM Records team, have adopted a strategy to encourage the use of Social Media by the community during SIGMM-sponsored conferences. It consists of awarding the attendee(s) who provides the best coverage of the conference on Social Media. In the case of ACM MM, two awards will be given! The awardee will be requested to write a post-conference report, to be published on SIGMM Records, and will be granted with a free registration for one of the SIGMM conferences of his/her choice within a period of one year. The requirements and criteria for the awards are specified here.
Up to now, the list of awardees include: Miriam Redi (ICMR 2017), Christian Timmerer (MMSYS 2017), Coner Keighrey and Benoit Huet (MM 2017), Gwendal Simon (MMSYS 2018) and Cathal Gurring (ICMR 2018). The reports can be found at the SIGMM Records website: http://records.mlab.no/
Let’s contribute to spread the reach of @SIGMM and @ACMMM18 around the globe! #SIGMM #ACMMM18
