The 18th biennial conference will be held at the Quebec Conference Centre (http://www.convention.qc.ca) during 12 to 16 October 2009 in Quebec City, Canada. Quebec City is the only walled city in North America and is just winding down its 400th Anniversary celebrations (http://www.quebecregion.com).
The Conference will open on the 11th October by the usual evening icebreaker and will end on the evening of 16th October by a banquet and dance. Materials for pre-registered participants and on-site registration will be available Sunday, 11 October 2009. A conference website is now operational and will serve as the primary resource for all of the deadlines and information related to the conference.
