IT Underground conference in Rome cancelled at last minute

I reported last week that I would be speaking at the IT Underground conference in Rome in a post titled "I will be speaking at the IT Underground in Rome" next week but today I received an email from the organiser telling me that the conference has been cancelled. He did not say why. This is a pity as I was looking forwards to doing a hands on version of my many ways to become a DBA presentation. It is also very annoying as I spent quite a bit of time building a VMWare image and Oracle database on it prepared for the attendees to try Oracle security exploits against and also for them to try some Oracle security tools against. I also spent time updating the presentation. I also prepared quite a number of exercises for attendees to try.
