Astronomy to host this event on the main UVic campus. Sessions will generally be
held in the Bob Wright Earth Sciences building, and accommodation will be across

offering some great tours and activities so delegates and guests can take home a
fantastic experience from their visit to Victoria and Vancouver Island.
