Attending the Event



All SYMBIONT laboratory and symposium events will take place at the University of Calgary’s School of Creative and Performing Arts located here. There is also an interactive room finder for buildings at the University of Calgary that will provide guidance for other facilities on campus.

Our final day (Nov. 17) will see us visit the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Details on that outing can be found here.


A block-booking of hotel rooms with the Hotel Alma on the University of Calgary campus has been arranged. The hotel is conveniently located just steps away from the School of Creative and Performing Arts. There are two types of rooms available: single rooms and flats. (Full suites are also available and are listed at the link, below, but these sit outside of our block-booking). The single rooms include breakfast; the flats include two private bedrooms and a shared kitchen area (but not breakfast). These rates are available from Nov. 11 – Nov. 17; individuals looking to book for longer than this period should contact the conference organizers directly for instructions.

To make a booking, see SYMBIONT Accommodation.


We are requesting a registration fee of $50.00 from all fully-employed participants. These funds will go towards the accommodation costs of participants who are not fully employed at this time. Prior registration is not required; rather, participants will be asked to provide $50.00 CDN in cash onsite. A automated bank machine is readily accessible within our facilities, and we will provide receipts upon request.

Registration is free for all U of Calgary faculty, staff and students.
