Practical Information for Participants:

Please register as soon as possible at https://secure.utm.utoronto.ca/aabpc-2016/tickets. All participants, including speakers and chairs of sessions, must register
Up to date information concerning the Colloquium and AABP can be found at www.yorku.ca/aabp. As most sessions last 90 minutes, when they include three speakers, no paper should exceed 25 minutes so that sufficient time is available for questions.

On Thursday May 5 all sessions will take place in Rooms 250, 260 and 270 of the Instructional Centre Building (IB) at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) located approximately 40 kilometers west of the University of Toronto St George (UTSG). A light breakfast and a buffet lunch will be provided. Coffee and tea will be available during the morning and afternoon. The following is a link to a map of the UTM campus:

On May 5 complimentary transportation between the Holiday Inn, 280 Bloor Street West, and the UTM campus will be provided by a York University bus. The Holiday Inn is located a short distance west of the St George exit of the St George subway station. The bus will leave promptly at 7:30 a.m. and arrive at UTM at approximately 8:15 a.m. A York University bus will depart from the IB promptly at 5 p.m. to take you directly to the AABP reception held from 6 to 8 p. m. at the University of Toronto Faculty Club, 41 Willcocks Street, a 20 minute walk from the Holiday Inn.

There is also a regular shuttle service between the two campuses. The schedule can be accessed here at: http://www.utm.utoronto.ca/shuttle/. The shuttle departs from Hart House on the St George campus (UTSG) and from the IB at UTM. Tickets for the shuttle must be purchased either from the Hart House Porters Desk at UTSG or from the ticket machine at the IB stop before boarding the shuttle bus.

On Friday May 6 the sessions will take place at UTSG in the Jackman Humanities Building, Room 100A 170 St George Street, immediately opposite the St George west subway entrance. A light breakfast and a buffet lunch will be provided. Coffee and tea will be available during the morning and afternoon. A book exhibition will be held in honor of the Colloquium in the Blackburn Room on the 4th floor of the Robarts Library, 130 St George Street, 4-5 p. m. https://onesearch.library.utoronto.ca/library-info/ROBARTS

Dinner has been arranged to start at 7:30 p.m. at La Société, 131 Bloor Street West. There is an additional charge for this event. If you wish to attend the dinner with or without a guest please register appropriately and pay online.

As University of Toronto regulations do not permit alcoholic drinks to be included in the budget of a conference you will need to pay for these separately if you order them at the May 5 reception. Also note that the cost of all beverages - alcoholic, non-alcoholic, tea, coffee, bottled water etc. - will be extra at the May 6 dinner as they are not included in the set menus.

As the weather has been rather unsettled recently you might find it useful to take a look at the Toronto weather forecast before you pack or even before you go out for the day during your stay http://weather.gc.ca/city/pages/on-143_metric_e.html

If you encounter difficulties during the Colloquium please text or call Paul Evans (+1) 416 219 4170. The emergency number in Canada is 911.
