This is an event organized by the PIMS CRG in Operator Algebras and Non-commutative Geometry. Interested participants please contact the organizers.
Founded by Israel Halperin in the early 1970's, the Canadian Operator Symposium will be held for the 39th time next spring in Victoria. The overall goals of the meeting have traditionally been threefold: to bring in international leaders in the field to explain the most topical recent developments to the Canadian community, to highlight the current research activities of the leaders within Canada and to provide a resource for young researchers / graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and young faculty. This activity is in the CRG in Operator Algebras and Noncommutative Geometry sponsored by PIMS.
Individuals are responsible for securing their own accommodations. We recommend you book early, Victoria is a popular tourist destination in the summer and vacancy rates will reflect this.
The University of Victoria offers "dormitory style" accommodation, as well as, "Cluster House" accommodation. For information on these options please refer to http://housing.uvic.ca/visitor/visitoraccom.php for descriptions and call (250) 721-8395 to book. These are on first-come first-serve basis.
We have booked a number of rooms at the residences in the University of Victoria; please mention the Canadian Operator Symposium when reserving.
There is also an option for some hotel accommodation on campus. More information on both of these may be found at:
