The conference will be held at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, nestled on the side of Tunnel Mountain in Banff National Park. We hope you will enjoy its exceptional views and peaceful natural setting.

Because the Centre is at some remove from Banff Townsite, we strongly recommend that you reserve your accommodation here so that you can readily participate in the conference program and all that the Centre offers. We have negotiated excellent room rates for conference attendees.

As some of you have already determined, the Banff Centre is having difficulties with its online booking system. We encourage you to phone the Centre directly or email to make your reservation. Please use the code”AVS1711″ to ensure you receive the conference rate:
