Im sorry to hear that the fund refused supporting the conference. You are doing a great work with organising the conference, big thanks! Of course, I would greatly appreciate to get my expenses covered, However, if it proves impossible I will probably not be able to stay away in any case... I followed your link but it ends in a broken website. In lack of a better idea I wrote my "feedback" in the "resource page" on my contribution "Darknets of light". Did you have something else in mind?
All the best.

Subject [spox] Major financial problems
yesterday I learned that our application of a big grant to support the
4th Oekonux Conference has been rejected. We had hoped that this grant
would be the backbone of our funding for the conference but it is now
clear this won't be the case. Now we need to think very hard how to
deal with the situation. There are a couple of options and we
carefully need to check them out.
Unfortunately this means that as of now we can *not* guarantee that we
will be able to remunerate your travel and accommodation costs. So
do *not* book any flights now
In addition we need to know how much money we actually need for
remuneration. So far we have only some estimates and we need to have
hard numbers here so we know how much we need. For this we need your
In our conference planning system you can tell
whether you need remuneration
of travel and/or accommodation costs and how much money you need for
for some hints on how to do this. Since we need a basis for further
planning I have to set a deadline for your feedback. Please give us
Sunday, January 18th
Please note: By default this option is set to *no need* for
remuneration. So if you need remuneration you *must* check the
respective options and fill in the amount for travel remuneration. If
the respective boxes are not checked after the deadline above we
assume that you do not expect remuneration from us. The amount need
not be exact to the Euro cent but also should be in a range of +/-10%
about the real costs.
In case you have any trouble with the conference planning system don't
hesitate to get back to me or simply post to this list. I'll be glad
to assist you.
