Will You Need a VPN?Mon 24 Oct 2022


If you haven’t heard yet, we will use Webex Events (formerly Socio) as the platform for the 2023 SIGCSE Conference! We hope this new platform will make the hybrid experience even better. One part of that is assuring that everyone who registers has access to the online content.

Remote Access Limitations

While this platform is available in most places around the world, if you are planning to attend remotely from a handful of countries, you will need to use a VPN. Webex is currently not available in the following countries: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Russian Federation, Sudan, Syrian Arab Republic, China, Ukraine, or Belarus.

For more information, see Webex Event’s (formerly Socio) help post.


While we believe this is a familiar process for many of the affected individuals, we are here to help if necessary. Feel free to reach out to us with the contact form or to support@socio.events.
