Dear Conference Organizers the World Over:

When someone is trying to decide whether your conference might be one they're interested in attending, one of the most important factors is how much it will cost. Most of us have limited travel budgets, and have to spend our pennies carefully.

Consequently, it would behoove you to put the goddam registration fee somewhere on your webpage!

This would be especially helpful for those of us who are trying to put together those aforementioned travel budgets in order to ask for enough money to be able to attend conferences.

Conferences are so much more trouble to organize when people actually attend them.

I just noticed I can select an icon next to the subject. I wonder what this will look like?

Amen to that! Some of us get scant warning about conference opportunities, too,
so we don't have time to chase down costs to submit a request.

The last registration I did, I had to download the registration form to find the cost. Totally annoying.
