There are many other accommodation possibilities available–check out http://destinationstjohns.com/. Please note that July is the height of the tourist season so book early. Also, please note that if you are planning on traveling around the province, make those reservations early as well. There are usually more tourists than accommodations available, so booking early is essential.

Rental cars. If you would like to rent a car, please do it early (maybe right now!). There can be a shortage of rental cars in the summer. Cars can be reserved at the airport: http://stjohnsairport.com/to-from-airport/ground-transportation/car-rentals/

Submissions. Due to technical issues CSBBCS now anticipate the submission portal will open sometime beginning 12 February. The site will  close at the end of April. There will be 5 types of presentations: Invited addresses, invited symposia, symposia, individual talks, and posters.

Travel. For participants from the UK, there are direct flights from both Gatwick (WestJet) and Heathrow (Air Canada), as well as a direct flight from Dublin (WestJet). When making travel plans, be sure your destination is St. John’s International Airport, airport code YYT, and NOT Saint John Airport, airport code YSJ, which is in Saint John, New Brunswick.
