    The conference looks great and it looks like the program committee has done a fabulous job. The costs are extremely reasonable however the fee of $70, the gas and tolls for over 200 miles of travel, $37 for lunch & dinner (assuming that the attendee pays for the other meals) and more than reasonably priced rooms at $42 a night is just over 3/4 of our annual budget.
