Accommodations

Capilano-UniversityOur 2018 Annual Meeting will be held at Capilano University campus in North Vancouver.  Capilano University is a gorgeous, wooded, secluded spot, so conference attendees will need to find transportation.  The public transportation system in Vancouver is lovely.

There are really few cities like Vancouver.  On the ocean, at the foot of the mountains, award-winning dining everywhere, and perfect for outdoor recreation, Vancouver is an ideal location.

At AAEEBL, we encourage you to arrive early or stay on after the conference and enjoy Vancouver.  Our schedule is for keynotes starting at 9 am to give you time to travel to campus (coffee at 8 am, welcome at 8:30 am).  The conference ends before 5 pm each day to give you time to explore Vancouver with your colleagues.
