It is an academic conference, and typically participation in a
workshop at a conference requires you register for the conference. The
conference costs money, and sometimes (as in this case) the workshop
as well (in addition).

Before anyone gets upset: These academic conference are comparatively
cheap, certainly cheaper than commercial conferences, and they are
budgeted to break even (non-profit behind it). But of course it is
more expensive than a free unconference or something.

Being a presenter doesn't buy you anything unless you have been
specifically invited by the chairs.
