The 2024 SIGCSE Technical Symposium will be a primarily in-person event with only limited remote participation options. The health and safety of the TS 2024 family — participants and volunteers alike — remains a top priority. With a focus on coming together safely this March, we will be implementing the safety protocols below for all in-person participants. While the information provided here is accurate at the time of writing changes may be necessary on short notice to comply with government mandates.

Proof of Vaccination

Vaccination is an effective way to reduce your risk of contracting a variety of communicable diseases, including COVID-19. We encourage all attendees to be vaccinated in accordance with the guidelines and regulations of the public health authorities in their jurisdiction of residence. Attendees at the 2024 SIGCSE Technical Symposium are not required to submit proof of vaccination or attest to being fully vaccinated.

Face Masks

Face masks are an effective way to prevent the spread of many common respiratory viruses, including COVID-19, RSV, and the flu, in crowded indoor spaces. Anyone that would like to wear a mask should feel free to do so. Please respect each individual’s choice about whether or not to wear a mask.

Social Distancing

Buttons and/or stickers will be available, similar to what was has been provided in recent years, to indicate your preference for handshakes, elbow bumps or no physical contact. Please respect the preferences that other attendees are indicating. Seating is currently planned to be standard conference seating.
