    sudden cancellation

    DOTAKYAN
    One university was going to celebrate its
    30 years commemoration. I recommended a
    personality as a main speaker there. She
    accepted the proposal, but she cancelled
    two days before the celebration day.
    Our slang word for that is DOTAKYAN
    'sudden last-minute cancellation'.
    It's quite frequently used, but very informal.
    Do you have any such slang word?
    Thank you.

    I would probably say "the meeting was scratched or scrubbed at short notice".
