Limited travel support is available for Canadian students. Email Bruce Kapron for details.
Accommodations are available at the Peter Wall Institute and Gage Towers, both on UBC campus. Both locations are cheaper when we make the reservations, so feel free to contact Anne Condon for booking assistance. We can also arrange cheaper rates at downtown hotels.
The rump session is an opportunity for people other than the invited speakers to briefly introduce their research to the other attendees. Each participant in the rump session will be given about 5 minutes to present their current research topic. We encourage you to participate! If you would like to participate, email Will Evans.
