[D] Are NeurIPS workshop authors reserved tickets for the main conference?
Does anyone know if workshop authors are reserved a registration slot at the main conference in addition to the workshops? I’ve asked several organizers but can’t seem to get a consistent answer. I’d have to pay my own way to Vancouver, so I want to be sure I can attend the whole event before committing.
Additional info: In this blog post, the organizers say, “Registrations and tickets will be withheld from the lottery for the following content creators: authors of accepted papers, workshop presenters, …” This seems to imply that tickets are set aside for workshop presenters. But the website says “Workshop organizers will have a limited number of reserve tickets to give to workshop presenters”, which seems to imply the opposite, i.e. that only a select few workshop authors are given tickets.
Any workshop authors out there who have gone through the process and know how it works?
