SIGCSE TS 2023
Wed 15 - Sat 18 March 2023 Toronto, Canada

Current as of August 11, 2022

SIGCSE TS 2023 will be an In-Person Event with Full Remote Participation Available

TS 2023 will take place from March 15 to 18, 2023, with the in-person component in Toronto, Canada and the virtual component hosted on an online platform. The TS 2023 committee is dedicated to providing the community with the best possible conference experience for all participants regardless of the modality of their participation.

The health and safety of the TS 2023 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

If you are attending TS 2023 in-person you will be required to attest to being fully vaccinated as part of the registration process. This will be done on the honor system – no proof of vaccination documents will be collected. (Please note that while the TS will not be collecting proof of vaccination documents the Canadian government is currently requiring visitors entering Canada (including US citizens) to be fully vaccination and to provide proof of such when entering the country). Individuals attending the TS online are not required to be fully vaccinated.

Masks

A decision has not yet been made about whether or not masks will be required during TS 2023. It is anticipated that a decision about such will be announced in early January.

Social Distancing

Buttons will be available, similar to what was provided in 2022, to indicate individual’s preference for handshakes, elbow bumps or no physical contact. Seating is currently planned to be standard conference seating. However, areas within rooms may be set aside for attendees wishing to maintain greater distance from others. A final decision regarding physically distanced seating will be made closer to the technical symposium.
