ISLS Annual Meeting Dates Changed to June 10–15

The dates of this year‘s annual meeting have been changed due to circumstances that were beyond our control. Originally, the event was scheduled for June 13–17. We have now changed the dates to June 10–15. Workshops will begin on Saturday, June 10 in the afternoon, and proceed all day Sunday the 11th. The two conferences (CSCL and ICLS) will be held on June 12, 13th, 14th (all day), and half day on Thursday the 15th.

The reason for this change was the new dates announced by the Montreal Formula One, Grand Prix race, which was originally scheduled for June 9–11, but were changed unexpectedly to June 16–18. This heavily implicates hotel availability, to the extent that we had to shift the ISLS meeting to a couple days earlier. We strongly advise booking your hotel rooms early, with most participants likely leaving town on Thursday night June 15.

Meanwhile, this year’s annual meeting is coming together nicely. Notifications about paper, poster and symposia submissions will be sent out in the next week or so. We will also be updating the conference website in the next couple of weeks, with new details about hotels, tourism, and conference programs.
