Important announcement, 1 February 2011
The University of Birmingham has informed us that the number of rooms allocated to us has been reduced due to a change of policy. We still have our full allocation of ensuite single rooms, plus a number of twin rooms which are available to those who are prepared to share. Those sharing rooms will be offered a reduced rate, while ensuite rooms will now be offered at the standard rate - new registration forms can be downloaded below. People who would like to share a room should email the BACS office (email@example.com) to inform us, but we will be contacting everyone who has booked at student rates. Anyone who has paid at the old rate will receive a refund for the difference.
The British Association for Canadian Studies looks forward to welcoming you to its 36th annual conference at the University of Birmingham. The campus is 2 miles from the city centre, in landscaped grounds, with its own railway station linking it directly to Birmingham New Street Station; Birmingham International Airport has direct flights from Canada, the US and Europe and the city is easily reached by rail from London or by coach from the other major airports. See maps and directions for further information on getting to Birmingham.
Conference accommodation will be in a choice of single en-suite rooms (Option 1), or twin ensuite rooms (student rate), a short walk from the Business School, where sessions will take place. You can save money by choosing one of the "packages" (Options 1 and 2) or register for the days you wish to attend. Day delegates are welcome!
