This FSI2 & FIV+N symposium will be held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  This series of symposia have been held since 1980. This symposium is a sequel to the very successful symposia most recently in New Orleans 2002, Vancouver 2006, Montreal 2010 and Anaheim in 2014. 


There are several options available for accommodation. Here are some suggestions:

  • Ramada Plaza Toronto, 300 Jarvis St. Link (conference rate: $229 + 13% HST, limited availability with code CGFSSI).
  • Holiday Inn Toronto Downtown Centre, 30 Carlton St. Link
  • Courtyard By Marriott, 475 Yonge St. Link
  • Ryerson University Residence (Pittman Hall, $140 + 13% HST)


If you wish to stay farther away from the conference location, you may want to visit to consult available subway, bus, or light rail transit routes available.

For attendees arriving at Pearson International Airport, you may take the UP Express, a frequent train (every 15 min) that links the airport to downtown Toronto in 25 min, at a cost of 12.35 CAD one-way. The train arrives at Union Station, which is only a 13-min subway ride away from the hotel (take Line 1 -- Yonge-University).
