During the month of Ramadan I have to participate in an international conference far from home (for 5 days). Do I have to fast these days?

From a previous question:

A traveller (one who is undertaking a journey of more than 77 kms (48 miles) and does not intend staying more than 14 days at his destination). However, it is better for him to fast in Ramadan than to fast later, provided the journey is not a demanding one.
