General Information
ASTRO 2016 will take place in Ottawa Ontario during the world-famous Canadian Tulip Festival. Ottawa is the Nation's Capital - modern, compact and safe. For conference delegates and for their companies, it's a beautiful and exciting city to visit in the Spring!

The conference Hotel is the newly-renovated Delta Ottawa City Centre. In the heart of the downtown core, the Delta is surrounded by excellent restaurants. It's a leisurely 10-minute walk from Parliament Hill, and a 10-minute cab ride from the justly famous ByWard Market dining/entertainment/shopping.

The Plenary Program features Keynote Speakers and Panel Discussions with Canadian and
international space leaders. For more on the speakers and the event itself, please select this link for the promotional information.
