Unfortunately I’ve just had to pull out of the Austrian Oracle User Group conference in Vienna in June. It’s a one day conference and only one of my papers was selected. The ACED travel support requires that at least two* papers are selected before you can apply for approval, so that knocks me out of the running. Sorry for any inconvenience to the organizers. On the positive side, another slot has opened up in the schedule for someone else to present. 🙂
As a note to other ACEDs, make sure conference organizers are fully aware of the conditional nature of your application. I always try to remind people that I can only come if I get travel approval, but in this case that message got lost somewhere down the chain.
* This is not a recent change to the policy. It has been the case for as long as I can remember.
