Many hotels are also within walking distance. Please note that the SFU Harbour Center is adjacent to the Harbour Center, which is a commercial facility.

The location of the talks will be posted shortly.

The City of Vancouver

With spectacular views of the ocean and mountains, Vancouver is a charming and friendly city. There are lots of interesting neighbourhoods to explore, and the outdoors are right in the middle of our city (Stanley Park).  Public transit will get you most places of interest, and Google Maps wil also help you plan your trip by transit.

For more about the city, please visit the Tourism Vancouver website.

For a more informal look at things to do, here's the 'Insider's Look'.

The city offers a 'Hop on, Hop off' tour by bus of the downtown area.
