ICST 2024
Mon 27 - Fri 31 May 2024 Canada

Wednesday, May 29: Reception at the Schulich Executive Learning Center

Located at the Schulich School of Business in the Keele Campus of York University, a 6-minute walk from the conference venue (see the map), the Executive Learning Center is a modern space tailored for cutting-edge learning and knowledge sharing. Our reception will start at 6:15PM and will take place in the Executive Room and the Courtyard of ELC and will feature a scrumptious Canadian BBQ and drinks for every taste!


Thursday, May 30: Cruise and Dinner on Lake Ontario

The main social event of the conference will be a cruise dinner on Lake Ontario, one of the Great Lakes, and a true Canadian experience! The cruise will be on the Trillium Deck of the Odyssey, a three-level yacht. Attendees are welcome to go to the upper deck and enjoy the Toronto skyline by night, including the imposing CN Tower, and gaze at the Toronto Islands from afar. Magnificent dishes and plenty of drinks comprise the dinner of the cruise, which also includes a DJ just for the entertainment of the ICST attendees!


Boarding begins at 6:30 PM sharp from 207 Queen’s Quay West, so make sure you navigate yourselves there right after the technical program ends for the day. The mooring of Odyssey is about 1 hour away from the conference venue by transit (see map) or a 14-minute walk from Union station (which is on the same subway line, the Yellow Line 1, with York University). The Odyssey will depart at 7:00 PM sharp. A bus service will be available for the trip back to York and Vaughn region hotels. Please make sure to choose your desired meal for the cruise (choices between chicken, beef, vegetarian, and fish are available until supplies last), and let us know if you will be taking the bus back to York at the registration desk.
