Funding for a Conference

I am writing a small grant to our institution to fund a half-day long local WeBWorK conference. I planning to ask for money for food to help bring people. Does anyone have any ideas about other things to ask for?

Great! None of this is necessary of course, but if you can get money for it, it might be nice to provide participants with maybe:
  • a live usb containing webwork
  • folders with some of the "getting started" documentation from the wiki (the tutorial, the "Day in the life of a WeBWorK professor", etc.
  • copies of the AMS homework study from the AMS - they have a nice small booklet form you could include in the folder.

If you want, I can send you a bunch of webwork stickers in the mail - these were produced for the last mathfest and we have a bunch, and you could pass them out to participants to put on their computers. (Just email me with your address and how many stickers you want, and I can drop some in the mail for you.)
