Banff is a tourist town and accommodations fill up quickly. We encourage conference attendees to make your accommodation arrangements as soon as possible to avoid disappointment or high prices.

We have reserved a limited number of accommodations at the Banff Centre, the location of the conference. You can access these accommodations when you register for the conference.

In addition to accommodations at the Banff Centre, there are accommodations of varying sorts and prices both in the town of Banff and in the adjacent town of Canmore, which is just outside Banff National Park. If you stay in Canmore, you may need to drive to the Banff Centre.

Getting Around Town

The Banff Centre is a brief 10 minute walk downhill to town. The return trip is slightly longer as it is uphill. Downtown Banff can be reached by taxi for less than $10 each way. There is no shuttle bus that runs from Banff Centre to downtown Banff. There is also no Lyft/Uber in town and apparently only one taxi company.


The weather in Banff at the end of May/beginning of June can range from beautiful sunny and warm to snowy. It’s shoulder season. Skiing is over and hiking has started, but in a regular season higher elevations will still be snowy and possibly inaccessible. We’ll post weather forecasts closer to the date, but further information is available on the web.
