We are proud to be hosting this year's CFD conference at the Engineering and Information Technology Complex at the University of Manitoba, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Winnipeg is the geographical center of Canada, is convenient to reach, and has direct flights to major cities of North America through the Winnipeg James A. Richardson International Airport.


On-campus accommodation is available at the University of Manitoba. It is recommended that the conference participants use the university residences. However, for those who would prefer staying in a hotel, a 10% discount for delegates has been arranged with several hotels near the university (please inform the hotel that you are on a business trip related to the University of Manitoba).
