Logistics and Schedule

CAST 2016 will be held at the Simon Fraser University Harbour Centre campus in downtown Vancouver, Canada, August 8-10 2016. The address is 515 W Hastings St, Vancouver, BC V6B 5K3, Canada.

The conference hotel is the Delta Vancouver Suites, attached to the Harbour Centre. An allotment of rooms at a special conference rate is set aside for CAST Attendees. Note: if you attempt to book a room for dates before or after the conference (Sun-Tue), the Marriott web site will incorrectly say that there are not rooms available. Your best bet is to call the Delta Vancouver Suites (888-890-3222) to make your reservation, and ask for the CAST rate during CAST.

As a major tourist destination, Vancouver has many options for lodging, but August is a busy time. We recommend securing lodging sooner rather than later.
