It's alot cheaper if the conference is in DC for me since there'd be
basically no additional cost involved.  A conference in Toronto or
Vancouver would be more expensive due to travel time, hotel cost, etc.
Though I might be as willing to go to Toronto as NYC if there was
a conference there.  It seems the conferences are often in Europe though
which is definitely more expensive than pretty much anywhere on the east
coast for me.
