FIW'03 Social Programmes
Informal Welcome Gathering (June 10)
Registration to the workshop will be possible from 9:00 to 17:30 in front
of the A-0150 room in the SITE building. After the tutorials, we will have
an informal gathering at the
Café Nostalgica, (603 Cumberland, University of Ottawa), from 17:40 to 19:15. This
Café offers a wide variety of good beers (including many from local
micro-breweries), as well as a good menu for the hungry ones. Part of the terrace
has been booked for us, and hopefully the sun will allow us to enjoy it!
Conference Banquet (June 12)
The conference dinner will be held on Thursday, 17:15, on... the Ottawa
River! We will have the opportunity to enjoy a dining cruise offered
by the Ottawa Riverboat Company.
The meal will be provided by the award-winning
Café Henry Burger, one of the top restaurants in the Ottawa area.
This cruise offers spectacular views of prominent Ottawa-Gatineau landmarks.
Departure will be from the Rideau River Step Locks behind the Château
Laurier Hotel. Additional cruise/diner tickets are available. There will
be time between the last session and the boat departure for people to go
back to their hotels if they need to. Note that the new departure time is
earlier than what was previously announced.
Programme Committee Dinner (June 11)
The PC dinner will be held on Wednesday, 19:00, at
of the National Art Center.
Le Café offers a very nice view of the Rideau Canal and an exquisite
menu. The National Art Center is Canada's premiere centre
for the performing arts and is located at 53 Elgin Street, at Confederation
Square (less than 20 minutes walk from the SITE building). See the map and instructions for more details.
