Summer School 2022
The registration is open. Please register through the indico website:
Note that you will need to go to a different website to pay the registration fee (credit card only, Visa or MC), and yet another website to book your hotel rooms. The links you need are all on the indico registration page.
Please make sure you book the room using the link on the registration page since it goes against our reserved block of rooms. A room booking (about CAD 115/night) includes two bedrooms that are connected by a bathroom. If applicable, when you book a room, you can list the name of the person with whom you will be sharing the (double) room (all rooms are double rooms).
If you have issues with the Indico website, please try a different browser, or clear your cache.

June 25, Tour of Prince Edward County
We will be starting the day with a tour of the 555 Brewery in Picton and having lunch there (pizza and beers). We will then go tour the LightHall winery for a tasting of their Winemaker’s Flight. We will finish with a tour of the County Cider Company and a tasting of their ciders. People will be pretty happy by the end of the day!
We are requested to get fully vaccinated to enter Canada. Please check the following links for details.
If you need an invitation letter for visa application, please send a request at your earliest convenience to the local organizer, Prof. Ryan Martin.
45 rooms (2 twin-sized beds in each) have been reserved for summer school. You are encouraged to share a room with your classmate. The link for booking will be shared soon.
