2019 Registration

To keep costs down, the UnConference runs a lot like buying/building a piece of furniture from IKEA (i.e., you do it yourself), except this experience won't leave you frustrated & generating new curse words for the Oxford Dictionary. In registering you have to contact Shamrock (where the UnConference is held) and also let us know that you are attending. See below for more info!


Financial Limitations? We know that funding is limited for everyone, but some of us have more money available at our institutions than others. oCUBE has funding available for anyone who is attending the UnConference and needs some financial support. To apply for funding please complete our Give me Some Money form by MAY 10 (this is a hard deadline!). This funding will cover up to the price of double-occupancy ($150/night per person + HST+ 15% service charge - includes food). If you choose to stay in a single room, you will need to cover the difference (a single room is $225/night + HST + 15% service charge - includes food; thus, the difference $75 per night). If you need a roommate for double-occupancy, please note this on the registration form below, however, there is no guarantee that you will find a roommate.

There's also another option! Shamrock provides one multi-person cabin (the "Treehouse") free-of-charge*. The only fee for this option will be to cover meals for $70 per day (plus HST) per person. Individuals who go with this option, like all attendees, have access to all the resort facilities. oCUBE funding will then cover the cost of your meals. Note that this multi-person cabin does not afford enough privacy for complete separation of males and females.

(Un)Conference Registration has two & a half steps:

Step 1: Reservation of accommodation/meals etc. with [WWW]Shamrock Lodge

oCUBE strives to be a community and the ideal (Un)Conference experience is organized to promote this community, with everyone arriving together on Tuesday, joining the Potluck Dinner Tuesday evening (see bottom of page), and staying through Friday morning's '(Un)Conference Reflection and Wrap-up' and Annual General Meeting (i.e., 3 nights stay at Shamrock). 
*** Please note that we will start the (Un)Conference a bit earlier than usual on Tuesday ***.

We recognize not everyone will be able to attend the entire (Un)Conference, so Shamrock has provided pricing on a daily rate basis:

Single occupancy rate: $225 per adult, plus HST and 15% service charge 
Double occupancy rate: $150 per adult, plus HST and 15% service charge

The above rates include, on a daily basis: 

  • Breakfast, lunch, dinner 

  • Breaks with coffee/tea/snacks 

  • Lakeside accommodation 

  • Conference room and high speed internet (wifi) 

  • Use of lodge facilities (including indoor pool and hot tub) 

  • Scenic boat tour (weather permitting) 

Contacting Shamrock Lodge directly will allow you to book your choice of accommodation, declare a preferred room-mate if you have one, and discuss any food-related issues etc. Shamrock has kindly indicated they would be willing to match up individuals wanting double occupancy but not having a preferred room-mate. So, if you want the double occupancy rate, but don't know anyone to room with, just indicate this to the Lodge staff when making your reservation. 

Be sure, when registering, to identify yourself as a witty member of the oCUBE group. A $100 deposit is required when making reservations; there is a $50 cancellation fee up until 2 weeks prior to the UnConference; after that time, the full deposit is retained. This deposit is in lieu of oCUBE paying a conference deposit up front (again, a cost saving measure for all involved). 

Contact the resort toll-free at: 1 888 742 6742 or 705-765-3177.

Step 2: Registration with oCUBE in the spreadsheet. 

This (Un)Conference can accommodate a maximum of 35 people. Please be sure to reserve your accommodation at Shamrock before (or shortly after) adding your name to the registration list. Feel free to use the 'comments' section below to solicit a room-mate for shared accommodation or for carpooling opportunities from others in your region. 

If you have any special accommodations (e.g. food allergies/issues) that need to be attended to during the (Un)Conference, please contact Sanja (sanja.hinic.frlog@utoronto.ca), Tamara (tljkelly@yorku.ca) or Joe (josephb@nipissingu.ca).
