This question is mainly about the perceived prestige of various events at conferences. Is there a hierarchy to it? Asking this in the perspective of being the presenter. Another way of putting it would be is "10 oral papers on my resume better" or "3 oral, 3 posters, 3 workshops, 1 tutorial on my resume better".

  1. Oral
  2. Posters
  3. Workshops
  4. Tutorials
  5. etc.

A detailed post regarding which is the most prestigious and why would be appreciated.

Example conferences:

  1. Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)
  2. International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR)
  3. Association of the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI)
  4. International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML)

0. Invited/plenary talk at the main conference

1. Paper in the main proceedings with an oral presentation

2. Paper in the main proceedings with a poster presentation

3. Everything else


Having a paper in the primary conference proceedings is more prestigious than not having a paper in the primary conference proceedings. If I understand how CVPR, ICML, and the like work, that means (oral presentations and posters) are more prestigious than (workshop, tutorial, or other).

Only a small number of CVPR/ICML/etc papers are accepted for oral presentation, so having a paper with an oral presentation is more prestigious than having a paper with a poster presentation.

Workshops and tutorials are apples and oranges. A workshop presentation is more likely to be associated with your own original research (if only in preliminary form). On the other hand, a tutorial presentation is a significant community service, and being invited to give a tutorial is a mark of community standing. I would rank tutorials slightly ahead of workshop papers, but I'm sure not everyone would agree with me.

    Actually, as of 2022 all accepted main track papers in ICML are oral. Some are "spotlight", which is like a short-oral in other conferences. May 24, 2022 at 9:18

I am going to give you a partial answer, waiting for a more complete explanation of your question. The highest prestige is in giving an opening or closing speech at a plenary session in a big conference. Then the same kind of talk at a secondary conference. Then a oral presentation at a parallel session in big confernence in your field, followed by oral/parallel/small. Poster in my opinion comes after all of this. Not sure what you mean by workshop, and tutorial. If you are the one leading the workshop, giving the tutorial, it's a big thing. If you are just attending, then it counts as training yourself, not educating others.
