I assume that there is no way to change the date for *this* conference;
it would require renegotiating agreements and rejuggling schedules with
too many actors (hotels, restaurants, important speakers, etc.).

But I would like everyone involved in planning *future* conferences to
keep this issue in mind.

Given how much variation there is in how people define "food acceptable
for Passover consumption", this could easily lead to embarassment on
both sides.
