CNRS/NASOH/Brock conference 2024

Inland Seas, Rivers and Canals

Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario – June 20-22, 2024

Conference Schedule, Presentation Abstracts and the Presenters’ Bios

The Conference Schedule is now available for the CNRS/NASOH/Brock 2024 Conference, to be held at Brock University, St Catharines between June 20 and June 22. We have a great line up of sessions spanning the two and half days of conference. Two or three concurrent sessions run throughout Thursday and Friday. Saturday morning will have a concurrent session followed by the AGMs for NASOH and CNRS. A reception for attendees will be held on Thursday evening at Isaac’s Pub and Grill, at Brock University. A graduate student and early career researcher mixer will be held Friday evening at Issac’s. A tour to the remnants of an earlier Welland Canal in Port Dalhousie will take place on Friday evening, and a tour of the St Catharines Museum and Welland Canal Centre will take place Saturday afternoon (Register for either or both tours on the registration site). The annual banquet will occur at Brock University on Saturday evening (attendees need to register for this on the registration site).

If you attend the conference please download the PDFs of the Conference Schedule and the Abstracts and Bios to your favourite device and bring them to the conference as there will be no paper copies distributed at the conference (we are trying to save a few trees).

It is now time to register for the conference. To do so you can proceed to the registration site here.

Registration involves selecting the appropriate conference fee (dependent on your affiliation and whether you are attending the entire conference or just one day), selecting to stay onsite in the Brock University residences (either sharing a bathroom or not), selecting the tours you want to experience, and your seat (with a guest perhaps), at the banquet on Saturday evening.

If you do not wish to stay at the Brock University residences three alternative St Catharines hotels have been listed (on the registration page) as suggestions (there is no conference rate at any of these). More suggestions can be found here, under the heading accommodations.

While food and beverages are provided for morning and afternoon breaks, and lunches are provided on Thursday and Friday, conference attendees are on their own for dinners and Saturday lunch. A list of local restaurants will be provided when you arrive at the conference.

Details will be forth coming about the sponsored reception held on Thursday evening (June 20) for attendees at the end of the first day of presentations.

A map of Brock University can be found here. Specific directions to general parking, residence parking and conference rooms will be forth coming.

A google map of St Catharines can be found here.

Student travel grants

Students may apply for a Chad Smith Travel Grant to assist in travel to present a paper at the conference. Additionally, each year NASOH bestows the Clark G.

Canadian students are encouraged to apply for the CNRS’s Gerry Panting Award for New Scholars to assist with expenses associated with traveling to the conference. Details for this award are available here.

Students cannot apply for both the Chad Smith and the Gerry Panting Award.
