Meals are not included in the registration fees, aside from the conference banquet. You may explore a wide variety of excellent restaurants and cafés across the UBC campus and in the city of Vancouver. However, for delegates who wish to arrange their meals in advance, we are offering two optional, low-cost add-on meal plans with UBC Hospitality Services. The ESTIMATED 2018 prices for these meal plans are as follows:

  • $68 CAD: Lunch plan (veg/non-veg): – 6 lunches [July 8-13, 2018].
  • $136 CAD: Full meal plan (veg/non-veg): – 6 lunches and 5 dinners [July 8-13, 2018].

Meal plans must be purchased in advance through the registration portal by the regular deadline of May 9, 2018. Full refunds on meal plans are available until May 9, 2018 (with an additional processing fee). These are estimated prices, and have been provided to help you better calculate travel expenses. Exact amounts will be announced once the registration portal opens (est. November 2017).

Please note: Breakfast is included with on-campus accommodations (see below). Participants will have a choice between vegetarian and non-vegetarian meal plans, though we may not be able to accommodate more restrictive diets. For your convenience, many of the housing options include kitchen facilities, and groceries are located at a walking distance from residence areas.
