Lunch Details

Lunch is on your own from 12h30 to 14h00 (2pm) each day (though some microconferences may alter slightly).

The hotel does have an on-site restaurant in the North Tower, but it is too small for all our attendees.

A map with nearby restaurants is available here (and hard copies can be had at the registration desk). PDF version here.

Please beware that several restaurants within walking distance of the venue are cash only.

Local weather

Of course the Canadian government has a brilliant website for weather information. Here is what you need to know about this week's Vancouver weather.

We should experience quite a bit of rain. That is one of the reasons why we chose to have the conference take place indoors.
