CSBBCS Annual Meetings

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

Future Meetings

The following meetings have been tentatively scheduled:

  • July 2018, Memorial University, Aimee Surprenant
  • June 2019, University of Waterloo, Myra Fernandes
  • June 2020, Simon Fraser University, Thomas Spalek
  • June 2021, McGill & Concordia University, Debra Titone/Jelena Ristic (McGill) and Aaron Johnson (Concordia)

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.
