SCIP is sensitive to reduced budgets and has made its 2009 annual conference very competitive in terms of pricing. If you still have some budget left from 2008, I believe this is the right opportunity to use it, as there is an early bird discount, which leaves the fee for SCIP 2009 just under 1,200 for SCIP members. Please consult fees with http://www.scip.org/files/SCIP09/RegistrationPricing.pdf
The program is updated continuously at http://www.scip.org/content.cfm?ItemNumber=5786
