Travel to Sudbury, Canada, is arranged by the participants. Sudbury has a local airport (Sudbury Airport YSB), where rental cars or taxis are available for transport to hotels. Travelers may also choose to rent a car from Toronto Airport and drive approximately 4.5 hours to Sudbury.

A minibus will provide transport from the above arranged hotels to the workshop according to a schedule to be posted on the website and announced at the workshop.

Parking will be available on the Laurentian campus at the workshop location (see campus map, building 17). You can get city maps and regional maps, such as these (map1 and map2), from Mapquest.

Meals and Restaurants

Coffee, light breakfast, refreshments and buffet lunches will be available at the workshop; these and a banquet on Sunday evening are included in the registration fee. Other meals can be arranged by participants at hotels and local restaurants. Here is a list of Sudbury restaurants, pubs and night clubs. Maps and suggested restaurants will be posted on this website and made available at the workshop.
