CSRF 2016 Conference Updates

We're 8 weeks away from #CSRF2016, time for another update!

1. Early bird registration

Interest in this year's CSRF has been overwhelming. Conference space is limited. Please register as soon as possible to ensure your spot. As an added bonus, save up to 10% on your registration fee if you register before August 22nd. See http://www.canadiansexresearchforum.com/registration/ for prices, details, and links for registration.

2. Student travel grant

We're very excited to announce our first ever student travel grants this year! CSRF is committed to fostering the next generation of sex researchers and clinicians, and part of the way we do this is to make our conference as affordable as possible for students.

This year, for the first time ever, CSRF is offering four travel grants valued at $250 each to students who are scheduled to present a poster, data blitz, or oral presentation at CSRF 2016.

To qualify, eligible students MUST BE REGISTERED BY THE EARLY BIRD DEADLINE, AUGUST 21, 2016. You don't need to do anything else to qualify other than being a presenter and registering by the early bird deadline. Students who register after the early bird deadline WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE for this grant, so register now!

Eligible, registered students, will automatically be placed into a random draw and 4 names will be selected. Winners will be contacted directly by email. The travel grant is not transferable to any other person and may only be used for CSRF 2016 in Quebec City. Good luck!

3. Limited hotel rooms

As I've said many times, the interest in CSRF 2016 has been overwhelming. At the time of this writing, our block of rooms at the conference hotel is SOLD OUT, as is the rest of the hotel.

I encourage you to secure your accommodations ASAP. The low Canadian dollar has resulted in increased interest in domestic travel and Quebec City is a popular destination. Please call the conference hotel directly, in case cancellations result in more rooms opening up. You can find the information about the conference hotel here: http://search.iqrez.com/reservations/HotelConcordeQuebec/search/21383?lang=en.

There are many options for various types of accommodations within a short walk or cab ride from the conference site, but rooms are going fast. We are working with our partners at Quebec City Tourism for more suggestions and I'll update you as soon as I have more information to share.

4. Acknowledgement of acceptance

Some of you have still not acknowledged acceptance of your presentation. You know who you are :) Please acknowledge the acceptance of your presentation directly with my by e-mail. The deadline for this is to be determined, but we'll be assembling our scientific program soon.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Please go to www.canadiansexresearchforum.com for details. For up-to-the-minute breaking information, follow us on Twitter, @_CSRF.
