Nevertheless, PhD students who attend the Annual Conference are encouraged to submit a work-in-progress to discuss during this event. See the Call for Participation for details.

Annual Conference Registration and Expense Reimbursement
The Conference registration fee for PhD students is $52.50. CBERN will reimburse the cost of travel to Calgary based on a rate card indexed to most economical fares by region for those PhD participants in need of assistance, and will arrange and pay for all meals and accommodations during the Annual Conference. PhD participants are required to share a two bedroom apartment at the Hotel Alma. These shared suites are equipped with two separate bedrooms and a shared kitchen and bathroom.
To qualify for reimbursement, PhDs must participate in PhD Cluster and Annual Conference program on Wednesday to Friday, and participate in online discussion in advance of the Research Incubator event. The pre-conference workshop on Wednesday is optional. To confirm your eligibility for reimbursement, to request to be matched with a roommate, and for complete travel reimbursement policies, please contact Judy Patla, CBERN Project Administrator: email@example.com.
Two PhD opportunities require steps other than registration for the Annual Conference:
