MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- The U.S. Air Force has cancelled an annual conference to be held this summer in Montgomery because of budgetary concerns.
Air Force officials said in a news release that they had cancelled the 2012 Air Force Information Technology Conference scheduled for Aug. 27-29 in Montgomery.
Air Force officials said this year's conference was cancelled because financial resources are "heavily constrained" and all Air Force events are being studied carefully.
The conference has been held annually since 1983, but was cancelled five times in the past for budgetary reasons.
The conference gives Air Force and industry IT users a chance to communicate with each other and to study and discuss best practices.
