CASCA/IUAES2017 Conference in Ottawa
International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES) and Canadian Anthropology Society (CASCA)
The Conference/InterCongress will be hosted at the University of Ottawa, on the unceded, traditional territory of the Algonquins of the Ottawa River Watershed. Canada’s capital city is built on the banks of the Kitchisippi, the Great River, the Ottawa River; the Sacred Chaudière Falls and Islands have served as a meeting place of great spiritual importance to the people of North America since time immemorial. In 2017, Canada celebrates its 150 birthday. Join us for our Conference/InterCongress May 2-7 2017, in the National Capital Region!
Registration is open. Prices will rise after 9th March. There is also a choice of two excursions, which must be booked separately. The daily timetable and the panel timetable are now posted, which should help you organise your trip.
To plan other aspects of your trip view the other pages under the Practical info section: Accommodation, Travel and Childcare. Several other large events will take place in Ottawa at the same time as CASCA/IUAES2017 making accommodation hard to come by last minute, so we recommend making your bookings soon.
