Hi Jeff, This is what the AES has posted under Registration for presenters, on this page: http://www.aes.org/events/147/authors/cfc/ "Registration All presenting authors (one per paper for categories 1 to 3) will be required to pay a Presenting Author Fee at the following applicable rate: AES members (Life member/Fellow/Member/Associate categories): $470 AES student members:$130 Non AES members: $595 These amounts are below advance registration fees for the Convention and are required payment for all presenting authors. No additional registration fee will be payable, all Presenting Authors will receive a Four-day All Access Badge on payment of their Presenting Author Fee." I don’t know how else to interpret this. If you have any contrary information, do share it with us.

I would assume that would be a deal breaker for large numbers of speakers.
