Yes, I would need travel costs and accommodations covered. Flights are
around $500 on Expedia, from Kansas City to London.

I do not request remuneration at all

Only travel costs. There are huge variations in costs and reservations
expire in 3 days, so I am not able to estimate that.

I can sleep in any bed you can get. I do not request hotel if you can
find a place to sleep

I can pay my food.

Dear speakers,

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
travelling. See

Correct link is

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
feedback until

                      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.

Modern methods of production have given us the possibility of ease and
security for all; we have chosen, instead, to have overwork for some and
starvation for the others. Hitherto we have continued to be as energetic as
we were before there were machines; in this we have been foolish, but there
is no reason to go on being foolish for ever.

--Bertrand Russell, In Praise of Idleness, 1935

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a
hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build
a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate,
act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a
computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
