PRNI2017 will be held at the New College Residences at the University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada. The conference site is easy to get to from the airport via public transportation: consider the Up Express train from the airport, followed by a bus or streetcar; google maps has details and schedules.


This venue has both meeting space and simple accommodations. You are welcome to arrange whichever accommodations you prefer, but if you wish to stay at the venue, a number of rooms are currently on hold for participants at the New College Residence in 45 Willcocks Residence – a dormitory residence at the University of Toronto on the St. George campus in downtown Toronto.

Special Rate: $43/night for single rooms or $62/night for double rooms. Included is linen and pillow, a towel, in room phone, wired and WIFI access (Bring your own Ethernet cord for wired internet access). Common rooms and washrooms are down the hall from the rooms. Reservations can be made by going to www.torontores.com and filling out a Reservation Form. Click on Book A Room. Fill out the 2017 Summer Residence Reservation Form for Short Term Stays (between 1 to 28 nights) and e-mail or fax it. Be sure to enter Special Rate Code “PATTERN2017” on your Reservation Form. Book as soon as possible to guarantee availability.

As the conference happens in the high summer season and in the busy downtown area, we strongly recommend the participants to make their hotel reservations at their very earliest convenience to minimize the cost for accommodation.

Regular hotel bookings can be individually performed by the attendees via Expedia, Google Maps or other search engines around the venue. For example, this link will show you few examples, among which the Holiday Inn Toronto (Bloor-Yorkville) hotel is affordable and only 10 min walk to the conference.
