TIN 2013 – Particularly for visitors

TIN 2013 participants might be wondering what will be included in the accommodation so they know what to pack for the trip.

Here is a link to information about the Schaffer rooms that we have booked for you. Below is a picture of a room showing some of the amenities including towels, sheets, and a desk!lister_schaffer

The majority of the conference activities will be in either the Edmonton Clinic Health Academy (ECHA); or in the Students’ Union Building (SUB).

We have paper maps in the conference kits, but participants might also consider downloading the University of Alberta app which has a whole set of materials including maps, transit information, etc.

At this time of year the days are 14 hours long here in Edmonton (sunrise 6:15 AM and sunset 9 PM) and the weather is mostly ranging between sunny, cloudy, stormy, and windy…  In Edmonton we sometimes say that if you don’t like the weather… just wait 15 minutes! Here is a link to the local weather forecast. Recently the weather has been very mild, so let’s hope that continues.
