The student tutorials will be held at the University of British Columbia (UBC). The exact location will be provided to students upon registration. UBC is very accessible via public transportation. Directions from the IPAC conference center (JW Marriott Parq) can be found here and directions from the airport are here.
The University of British Columbia campus is particularly stunning, especially in the spring, and students are invited to explore it in their free time. Among the many attractions at UBC, the beaches, the world class Museum of Anthropology, the endowment lands and the gardens are all very much worth exploring.
Accommodations are not included in the registration. We recommend students extend their accommodation arrangements for the conference to include the preceding night, which should work well for attending the student tutorials. Information on conference accommodations can be found here. The conference rates at the conference hotel are available from April 27th - May 6th, 2018.
