On Conferences

The good news:

I just got accepted to present the fruits of my summer 2004 labor at a conference in Berlin in July. Interesting people will be there. Interesting things will be discussed. Yay.

The bad news:

1) I'm supposed to be teaching when the conference happens, so I'll need to try and switch to a different session in the summer. Grr. Stupid teaching schedule.
2) It's 200 euros for a student to register. WTF? Gack.

So once again, I am gripped by the question of whether to go. Something about me and summer conferences in German-speaking countries, tsk.
