It depends, how you look into the matter.
- Firstly, if you think about higher education, surely I believe, spending money on publishing paper though the conference is worthy.
- Secondly, if you are planning for continuing your industrial job right after the degree, I guess it's not worthy for you in that case.
Now, choise is yours. Based on your plan, you need to decide whether it is worth or not.
All the best.
