Acceptable reasons for disinviting a scientist from a major international conference include finding out they're not really a scientist, but realizing they're pregnant (months after they've already told you) is not an OK reason—but that's exactly what happened this fall to Dr. Samantha Decombel, a British geneticist and entrepreneur.
