2015 – Nova Scotia Meeting
ISGEDR Meeting 2015 – Nova Scotia
ISGEDR 2015 was held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada on August 6th to 8th, 2015.
Halifax is a friendly seacoast city that has retained much of its historical charm. One can easily walk from the conference venue located at the edge of the downtown area to many historical sites, hotels, restaurants, shops and, of course, the lively waterfront. The conference was held at Dalhousie University in one of the Faculty of Medicine’s main auditoriums in the Sir Charles Tupper Medical Building (5850 College Street). The Opening Reception was held at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, and the Gala Dinner at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, both located on the waterfront, and each offering a different perspective on Nova Scotia’s rich maritime heritage locally and internationally. We thank Dr. Johane Robitaille, our hostess and her team, as well as all the participants for a very exciting conference and a wonderful stay in Halifax.
