Conference Web Services

Requesting a Conference Web Page, Email, Blog/Wiki, or Access to Listservs for Conference Advertising

Web Hosting Account

ACM can provide a hosting account.  You will be provided with cpanel access as well as ssh access to our hosting environment.  You will be able to manage your environment as well as install may open source software through our Softaculous subscription.   Available installs are here: http://www.softaculous.com/softaculous/

These scrips are configured for our environment and are one click installs.


Conference Web Domains

Staying with one domain name for your conference is a good practice to follow.  It helps with SEO in all the search engines.  Here is an example of good domain management:

conferences.yoursig.org

conferences.yoursig.org/yoursig/2017

conferences.yoursig.org/yoursig/2018

ACM can make managing your conference domain easy by doing it for you.  We can register the domain on your behalf and maintain it for the life of the event.  We help prevent domain “squatting” by making sure it does not expire.  If you currently have a domain ACM can manage that for you as well.  All you have to do is transfer it to us.     


Conference Email Addresses/Email Forwarding

If the committee requires conference-related email addresses such as gc-conference@acm.org, please email the request to:

ishelpdesk@hq.acm.org

Include in the request the preferred address as well as the person’s name and forwarding email address for each request.
