When I saw that elm-europe was happening in June I thought to my self:
“Ooh, a conference on elm - probably a long shot (as it is in France so I would need to travel) but maybe I could go.”
I then checked the website and saw that tickets cost $300. Alas, I am a student and there is no way that I can afford this.
So I have two friendly questions - both of which probably have obvious answers:
Why does a two day conference cost so much to attend/what makes organising a conference so expensive? Do other conferences cost a similar amount?
How to folk afford to attend. Perhaps working full time on elm brings big dollars or maybe there is something else that I am missing.
