Additionally, speakers will receive no monetary compensation for their participation. Unless the speaker is also a primary delegate, the speaker will also be responsible for the registration fee (which covers meals at SC2011). Sponsors or funding support should also be identified at the time the speaker is nominated. If no funding support is immediately identifiable for a particular speaker, the nomination may still be submitted, as sponsorship may be identified at a later time. In the past, Regions, Section, Chapters, or other IEEE units have covered the expenses of speakers.
