a TECHNICAL conference so marketing and commercial content
is not allowed within the program. The program committee
is charged with maintaining the technical standard of
APRICOT, and will therefore not accept inappropriate
materials. It is expected that the presenter be a technical
person and not a sales or marketing person. The audience
is extremely technical and expects that the speakers
are themselves very knowledgeable. All sessions provide
time for questions, so presenters should expect technical
questions and be prepared to deliver insightful and
technically deep responses. You can refer to the APRICOT presentation guidelines.
FUNDING AND SUPPORT
a not-for-profit event that tries to keep the cost to
attendees low so we are unable to pay the travel costs
of speakers. Speakers from developing countries may
be eligible for the APRICOT Fellowship
Program which provides basic assistance to successful
fellows to cover local living and registration expenses
associated with attending the conference.
Tutorial instructors will not have to pay any registration
fee to attend the conference or tutorials, and Conference
Speakers do not have to pay for registration to the
