Sponsorships are crucial to the financial health of the ICGSE conference series, and the assistance provided by our past sponsors is greatly appreciated. Up to 2016, the expense of holding the ICGSE conference was paid from two main sources of income: registration fees and sponsorships. Sponsors’ funds, often coming from industry corporations, universities, and other institutions, allow ICGSE to hold down the cost of registration, especially for students.
This year, ICGSE will be hosted in conjunction with ICSE. Some of the costs for organizing the conference will be shared and registration fees determined by ICSE. However, there are still expenses there are particular to ICGSE and as such costs are of our responsibility. Therefore, sponsorship continues to be an important source of income.
ICGSE 2017 will provide recognition and related benefits to sponsors in exchange for their financial support. For instance, we will recognize the sponsor’ support in public sessions, on the conference website, in written material, etc. Sponsors can provide information (e.g., brochures) directly to ICGSE attendees and be present at the conference to interact with the ICGSE audience.
We will soon be ready to discuss how you can contribute to ICGSE 2017 as a sponsor and benefit from the conference. Please, contact us at sabrina dot marczak at pucrs dot br to indicate your interest and we will soon provide you with more information.
