Residence Accommodation will be provided by Housing Services at the University of McMaster. You must book and pay for this separately from your Conference Registration. HOWEVER The OAPT does need to count how many people are staying in Residence, to make sure we stay within budget. As part of registering for the conference, you will be asked to indicate if you are staying on Thursday night and on Friday Night. The amount charged is shown as zero, so that you are not charged by the Conference Registration System. You will be charged when you register for accommodation by Housing Services at the University of McMaster.
For those not staying in residence, there are two options.
(a) Pay $20 per day and stay in any one of several lots on campus.
(b) Pay $5 per day and park in Lot M as shown on this map. It is about 1km from the conference location.
For those staying in Residence, they can pay in advance when they book their accommodation on line.
We accept payment by cheque or PayPal.

It helps the conference committee significantly if members register early. As an incentive, the conference fees increase for registrations received after the Early Bird cut off date.
