What are the registration discounts for speakers?

  • All talks (except BoFs and sponsored talks) earn discounts
  • Tutorials. Each accepted Tutorial (3.5 hours) earns two 100%-off speaker discounts; the discount goes to the first and second speakers listed on the talk
  • Standard Talks. Each accepted Standard Talk (25 minutes) earns one 50%-off discount; the discount goes to the first speaker listed on the talk
  • Extended Talks. Each accepted Extended Talk (55 minutes) earns one 100%-off discount; the discount goes to the first speaker listed on the talk
  • Two Standard Talk discounts may be combined for one 100%-off discount.
  • Speaker discounts may NOT be combined with other discounts, such as member, committer, alumni, sponsor, or group discounts
  • Speaker discounts are not transferable; unauthorized use will result in your registration being cancelled and additional registration fees may be incurred
  • Speakers on sponsored talks do NOT receive speaker discounts
  • All speakers must register for the conference in order to attend the session and give the talk

How do I register with a speaker discount?
Speaker discounts are implemented via coupon codes. If you are eligible to use a coupon code, we will send it to you. We are updating the speaker registration process to make it simpler. We will list the process on the Registration page and the FAQs pages when the details are finalized.

If you have submitted a talk, please do not register until you know the status of your submissions; speakers will be notified about their talks while the lowest registration price is in effect, so there is no need to register before you are notified.

How do I get my coupon code?
Codes will be emailed to presenters after the program is chosen. Please remember that for Standard and Extended talks, only the first speaker will receive a code; for Tutorials, only the first and second speakers will receive codes.

Does everyone listed on a talk need to register for the conference?
Anyone and everyone who plans to attend the conference in ANY role needs to register!

Does everyone listed on a talk need to sign the Speaker Agreement?
Yes, all speakers listed on a talk need to sign a Speaker Agreement. It's important – this is your way of communicating to use that you do intend to show up and give your talk!

What should I do if I need to cancel my talk?
First, try to find a colleague who can fill in for you and then email us to let us know. Registrations are transferable if your plans change. If you must cancel, please email us as soon as possible so that we can fill your place in the program with a talk on the waiting list.
