CSBBCS / SCSCCC Annual Meetings

Each year the society holds an annual meeting which includes paper sessions, symposia, posters, a distinguished lecture, business meeting, and high-quality scientific interaction.

Future Meetings

The CSBBCS Meeting in 2024 will be hosted by the University of Alberta from June 25th to 27th inclusive (head organizers: Ben Dyson & Dana Hayward).

These venues are in accord with the location formula of East-Central-West-Central for the annual conference. The Quebec-Atlantic boundaries and the Ontario-Manitoba border define the three regions.


Thank you to Chris Fiacconi, Mark Fenske, Naz Al-Aidroos, and their fantastic team for planning a wonderful conference in lovely Guelph. The presentations and posters were excellent, and high praises for the food were sung by all.
