category: offtopic [glöplog]
Hey! I have a €1000 budget to go to a conference next year. Any suggestions?

Definitely not ACE for sure.

1k budget - does that already include flights & hotel or just the conference fee?

and the hookers and blow?
I assume €1000 is the total. But I guess I can add some more if it's worth it.

there are conferences related to many industries.
please be more specific.

but for e.g. an academic conference a total budget of 1000E is not much... just the entry fee alone can already be in that area
That's why I was asking. Depending on where you are and where you want to go when, 1k EUR most probably wont even cover the flights/hotel and other fees.
I would consider 1k EUR a rather low budget as soon the conference you want to go to isn't on the same continent as you are.
Regarding academic conference fees, those also depend on who/what you are - students can usually get massive discounts.

You might be able to find something small in your country where a 1k EUR budget is enough for, but you most probably wont be going to SIGGRAPH/SIGGRAPH Asia with 1k EUR only from Europe.

smartest thing to do would probably be: go local.

nagz has the right answer. If I was the one giving you €1000, I'd be pretty annoyed that you're basically asking "how do I spend this" rather than "how do I get the most professional value out of this".

(aaaand I just realised that "I have a €1000 budget" doesn't necessarily mean "I've been given a €1000 budget", so apologies if I'm jumping to conclusions)

...being a power plant engineer (not IT) I went to many conferences in that field...I found that the most important thing is to network with the people and get/stay in contact after...the conferences themself are not that interesting, as most is published anyway somewhere...and may you should choose the conference where most people go regarding the subject you are most interested...

While I'm currently working with specific tools (python, angular) for a specific market (engineering in general, satellite engineering in particular), it's hard to say that I'll be using this very same tools and working on this same specific market or product internally, so I was thinking about something slightly less boring like a hackathon kind of thing, stuff like CCC for example. That's mostly why my question was vague.

P.S.: I'm already going to revision.
