Various notes for Speakers
Travel and Accommodation for speakers
If your submission is accepted, funds are available for travel
and accommodation. We prefer to pay for the travel rather
than reimburse you. Reimbursement can take quite some time. We apologize for that.
If you, or your employer, pays for your travel/accommodation, they are eligible for listing
as a sponsor.
Registration for speakers
- Speakers should register for the conference.
- Speakers do not pay conference registration fees.
- Speakers should register using registration type 'xxx PGCon Speaker'
- Speakers, if they wish to attend tutorials, must pay for those tutorials
You must complete your biography each year.
We do not carry over your photo / biography from one year to the next.
Speakers who do not complete their biographies will be hounded.
Speakers who need hounding remove resources from key conference activities.
If you need hounding, you will endure the wrath of the Conference Organizer.
Few speakers survive hounding.

have the same, plus a detailed outline. If your talk involves a
external PostgreSQL-related project or product, you must provide links
