Satellite Meetings

Looking to connect with colleagues while in Banff? Perhaps there is a topic of interest that you wish to discuss that is not covered in our program? Well this is your opportunity! Once again, the COS is pleased to announce that we have a solution for you. 

We have reserved a limited amount of space (daily) for those wishing to convene onsite with colleagues for meetings. Space will be reserved in one hour increments. Please contact Christina Giese, [email protected] for more information or for availability. 

Please note: If you are not attending the conference, but are attending meetings before or during the conference, you are still required to register for the conference. There are "day registrations" on the registration form for this very purpose.
