I went to last years conference and it was very well put on and did
not cost very much to attend.  I think $30 or so.  Breakfast & Lunch
were provided, along with plenty of drinks & snacks available in
between talks.  They had 3 possible courses to attend during all 8
time slots and some were tough to decide between.

It's definitely worth the drive or train ride.
