Abstracts will be accepted only from authors who register for the conference and present their work in person or virtually in either poster or oral form. Submission of an abstract implies a commitment to attend the meeting and the abstracts of authors who do not subsequently register will not be included in the abstract volume.


The early registration deadline will be 01 April 2023.

Registration fees will be finalized in December when the budget is approved, but are expected to be similar to previous meeting and will include lunches (see below). Field trip, workshop and short course fees will also be finalized in December.



Attendees will be responsible for their own breakfasts and dinners. Because the Laurentian University campus is not close to restaurants, registration fees include catered box and/or BBQ lunches. Provisions will be made for those with dietary restrictions.
