Dear all,

This is a reminder for ACM FAccT 2022 Financial Support deadline, coming 
up on April 15th (deadline extended from April 13th). Please check the 
website for the submission form and to learn more: 

Those who lack the means to pay for registration or who cannot afford to 
travel to attend the conference may apply for financial support, which 
consists of (1) a registration fee waiver and/or (2) a travel grant.

We anticipate high demand for travel grants, and our priority is to 
ensure that financial need does not prevent people from attending and 
participating in the conference. Please apply for funding only if you do 
not have other resources that you can use to support your participation, 
and please try to source funding from within your own institution if 
possible. Please also apply for the minimum amount needed to attend the 
conference (considering travel, hotel, and subsistence costs).

Travel grants are offered in two modalities. In modality A. Expense 
reimbursement paid after the conference, you will be provided a link to 
an ACM page for uploading your receipts for flight, hotel, ground 
transportation, meals, and you will be reimbursed for eligible expenses. 
In modality B. Lump sum paid after the conference, you will be provided 
a link to an ACM page for indicating your mailing address, permanent 
address, and national tax ID number; you will be transferred the 
requested amount and this will be considered as taxable income that you 
will need to report to your national tax authority. Modality A is 
strongly preferred by the Organising Committee.

Applicants for financial support must justify their need in their 
application. Grants will be allocated based on consideration of the 
applicant's contribution to the conference (member of organising 
committee, presenter in CRAFT or Tutorial session, accepted paper 
presenter, volunteer), as well as on the importance of growing the FAccT 
community, and increasing access for populations historically 
underrepresented in the conference.

We can give out a strictly limited number of registration fee waivers. 
These will be allocated based on the same criteria, but we particularly 
wish to use fee waivers to encourage participation by members of civil 
society organisations that would not otherwise be able to attend.

Please submit applications as soon as possible and reach out to FAccT 
contact for any questions.
