7th International SRV Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

I am happy to share the following announcement from Zana Lutfiyya:

“I am pleased to announce that we have confirmed a location for the 7th International SRV Conference, to be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada from June 4-8, 2018 at the Fairmont Hotel. Monday June 4 and Tuesday June 5 will be pre-conference days and the conference itself will take place Wednesday June 6 – Friday June 8.

A program committee is being formed and we will take the opportunity to consult widely at certain points in the process. I hope to be able to announce the theme of the conference, as well as dates for paper and presentation proposal submissions and registration in August 2016.

The Fairmont Hotel is located at the heart of Winnipeg’s downtown in the Exchange District, steps away from the intersection of Portage and Main. Conference attendees staying at the Fairmont will be within walking distance of the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers, popularly known as the Forks. The Forks is a National Historic Site, and the location for the Canadian Museum of Human Rights, the Manitoba Theatre for Young People, the Children’s Museum, the Winnipeg Railway Museum and a farmer’s market in the summer, along with restaurants and cafes. It is the hub for several walking and bicycle trails that extend west along the Assiniboine River to the Manitoba legislature, across the river into Old St. Boniface, the French quarter of the city, and north along the Red River through the Exchange District. Visitors will be within a 10 minute cab ride to Osborne Village or Corydon, areas known for their restaurants and shops.

Coming to Winnipeg, visitors will also have the chance to visit the largest collection of contemporary Inuit sculpture and art in the world at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Canada’s oldest civic art gallery, or spend time at the Journey to Churchill, located at the Winnipeg Zoo in Assiniboine Park. The Journey to Churchill includes exhibits on northern Manitoba and the Leatherdale International Polar Bear Conservancy Centre (where several bears live!). For people willing to travel about 30 minutes to the south west edge of the city, they can visit Fort Whyte, another conservancy area with walking trails, an interpretive centre and a herd of 30 bison. Of course, people are welcome to come and simply take part in the conference as well!

So please hold the date and plan on attending the 7th International SRV Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.”
