    Let’s see if I can comment…Can we go if we don’t submit anything? This sounds super interesting.

    Yup, but the department won’t contribute to the costs. That said, I don’t know if this is official, but we may not have any more funding for student conference travel this semester. There is funding though, I believe, through the graduate student association.

    All that said, it’s usually best to have a paper when you go to these things. It’s kind of part of the process. You get to benefit from the comments of some really bright people, and often from a community of people who share your interests more precisely than you might find at home.
