Note: The Canadian postal strike is now over so registrations can now be once again be paid by cheque using surface mail. Registrations that were caught in the strike should now be received and recorded within a few days.

You also have the option of registering by making a telegraphic bank transfer instead of sending a cheque. If you choose this option you should make sure that the receiving bank account gets the full amount of the registration fee after all bank fees are deducted. After completing the bank transfer you should send a photocopy of the transfer as well as the registration form to John MacDonald (johnm@math.ubc.ca) so that receipt of the payment can be verified.

Please note that accommodation in single rooms in Gage Towers can be booked through this website.
Please reserve early because the housing block currently being held for conference participants will be released to the general public one month prior to the start of the conference. Please send an email to John MacDonald (johnm@math.ubc.ca) if you require accommodation for yourself and an accompanying person or persons since we may be able to arrange to book a few such rooms at a special rate for CT2011.
