Accommodation
Saint Mary's University is offering a limited number of reduced rate dorm rooms in their dormitory facilitie - The Loyola Residence. They are quite a bit less than a hotel would charge in downtown Halifax and an easy walk to the halls where the speakers will present. These will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis to attendees. They ask that you deal directly with them to book your room.
