Participant Information

Who Can Come?

Any student registered as an undergraduate (or simply as a student) at any recognized Canadian, or International post secondary educational institution may apply to be a participant at the 2003 conference. In addition, there are a limited amount of seats available for professionals who may wish to attend. TOP

Why Should You Come?

Anyone planning a career in any field involving the production or use of biomedical, agricultural or cybernetic technology will have a vested interest in the issues discussed at this conference. Examples of such fields might be medicine, law, bioethics, etc. Also, the topics of discussion may be of general interest to anyone, since they concern ethical disputes over new reproductive technologies, the Canadian Healthcare System and other issues relevant to the daily lives of Canadians, present and future.

Where Will I Stay?

For those who register early enough, there will be rooms on campus available for reasonable prices at the Coady International Institute. Spaces at Coady are limited though, so be sure to register as soon as possible. Once the rooms at Coady are reserved, there will still be rooms at local hotels and inns available for discounted prices. Information about these rooms is posted here. TOP

How Will I Eat?

Included in the registration cost are continental breakfasts for Friday and Saturday, as well as lunch for Friday and Saturday, and the closing banquet dinner on Saturday. The regular meals will be eaten at the newly renovated Morrison Meal Hall, and the location for the closing dinner will be announced when it is determined. Friday evening participants will be left to get their own meals, but many of the eating establishments around town will be offering discounted prices to participants. Information on food discounts will also be posted as it becomes available. TOP

How Do I Register?

Quite simple, really! Just fill out the online registration form found here. Registration fees are $60.00 CDN or $40.00 U.S. for Students, and $200.00 CDN or $140.00 U.S. for Professionals. There are limited seats available for professionals, as this is primarily an undergraduate conference, but they are most welcome to register while there are still seats available! A note will be placed here when all such seats have been spoken for. TOP
