More About Original Receipts

AIR TRAVEL RECEIPTS: The easiest way to supply original receipts is to provide the receipt for your airline travel.

If you purchased your airline ticket over the Internet, you must submit the PRINTOUT of YOUR EMAIL RECEIPT AND your ORIGINAL BOARDING PASS from the city where your travel begins.

TYPES of RECEIPTS: acceptable receipts, other than for airline travel, include food, lodging, and other transportation (taxi, bus). NO copies are accepted.

DATES on RECEIPTS: Receipts other than for your airline tickets must have a date that coincides with traveling to or from the conference, or on conference days. For example, since GECCO 2007 will be held from July 7 through July 11, 2007, receipts other than for airline travel must be dated between July 6, 2007 and July 12, 2007.

INVALID RECEIPTS: Your conference registration fee is NOT reimbursable.

Please take the time to understand the following:

The ACM will NOT, under ANY circumstances, release a check without the proper original receipts. There are absolutely NO EXCEPTIONS to this ACM rule.
