This sheet is a summary to what the conferences give you as speaker. I call this #PayToSpeak - sometimes you have to pay money to have the stage.
Last updated: May 2019 by pwicherski@gmail.com
2
This matters in particular for underprivileged speakers who have little money to pay but great lessons to share for perspectives we have not yet heard.
3
This list tries to have only conferences that are of international nature - in way they seek speakers. Local conference local speaker is always not #PayToSpeak.
4
Note: Keynote speakers have a different set of rules and are more regularly compensated in all categories. I will later extend the list on workshop speakers, now only conference talks.
5
The red line is there to indicate conferences where location you travel from does not change whether you need to pay to speak.
