SIGMOD will be sponsoring a book drive this year, as in previous ones, to collect books in the field of computer science and engineering, which will be donated to universities and research institutes in the third world.
This year, North African countries have been selected as the recipients of your donations. If you or your colleagues own used (relatively recent) or new books that you would like to donate, please bring them to the conference. SIGMOD will be responsible for handling both the distribution and the shipment costs to the destination countries. In return, you will receive a receipt a receipt of recognition, and your names will be posted on the conference website. In participating in this book drive, you will be truly helping countless young researchers in the third world who are not as fortunate as we.
NOTE: At the registration desk, there will be a person designated to collect your books and hand you a receipt.
