This year's exciting program is designed around shared morning sessions, branching off into parallel symposia in the afternoons. Each day will begin with a plenary session, followed by parallel symposia. Afternoons will move fluidly into parallel sessions covering the full spectrum of cryobiological themes, followed by our evening social events including our welcome reception, poster sessions, and traditional banquet.

Our stunning venue for this year’s conference is the renowned Fairmont Château Laurier, located in the heart of downtown Ottawa within easy distance of all the city has to offer. Modeled after a French Chateau, the building’s neo-Gothic façade designed to complement the nearby Parliament building, is sure to be a location to remember.
