Anybody else have feelings about this, negative or positive?

The Graphical Web Conference (formerly SVG Open) is taking place Sept 23-26 in Pittsburgh.
Sounds like the kind of thing Inkscape people should be attending in some form or another.
I submitted a talk on SVG 2 (in which I highlight Inkscape) which was accepted. For the past few years the conference has fully paid my travel costs (I've asked Inkscape for backup funding each time but I never had to use it). This year it is clear that the conference will be unable to fund my travel as they are running a rather large deficit. It is probably not worth the $1500 it would take for Inkscape to send me to the conference but it might be worth sending someone who is closer, especially if that person could fill in for me. I was thinking maybe along the line of $500 of support. (We can probably get the conference fee waived.)
What do you all think about this?
It's interesting to me. Who's the closest and most available to PA/USA?
I'm 1.4 hours away @ $164 by air. What about others?
