Honoraria and Support


If tutorial presenters prepare a promotional video, each full-day tutorial is granted a USD $3,200 honorarium (shared amongst at most 4 presenters); each half-day tutorial is granted a $1,600 honorarium (shared amongst at most 2 presenters). The honoraria are reduced to $2,800 and $1,400 for full- and half-day respectively if a promotional video is not provided.

Tutorial presenters each will get a fixed travel stipend towards their travel and accommodation expenses. Travel reimbursement is limited to airfare only. SC18 full-day tutorial presenters (up to a maximum of four per tutorial) may request a travel stipend of up to $600 per North American presenter and up to $1,000 per presenter outside North America, with half-day tutorial presenters up to a maximum of two per tutorial.

Presenters are responsible for making their own travel arrangements. Note that a full-day tutorial may have only six presenters and half-day tutorials may have only three presenters (and additional presenters above these limits must pay the tutorial fee).
