Sponsorship

Become a UIST sponsor

You are invited to support the UIST 2006 conference. This is an ideal way to demonstrate your organization's interest in and commitment to the field of user interface software and technology, and to publicize this support to many leaders and students in the field.

Corporate sponsor support is typically used to permit a greater number of students to attend UIST at reduced fees without artificially increasing the general registration, and to allow student volunteers to receive complimentary registration. Corporate support can also be targeted to a particular event or activity at the UIST Symposium. For example, you might finance the coffee breaks.

The conference recognizes three levels of sponsorship: Corporate ChampionsCorporate Benefactors, and Corporate Donors. We urge you to consider becoming a corporate sponsor for UIST 2006! Sponsors are very important to the conference, and the conference committee ensures that their contribution is well recognized. We list the benefits below. (If you can think of another benefit that would make sponsorship more attractive to your company, let us know!)
