Buses tend to run every 15 to 30 minutes (depending on the line, and day of the week). Visit the London Transit Commission website for bus routes and estimated bus arrival times.
The conference will take place at Western University in the Western Interdisciplinary Research Building (WIRB), Room 3000. The WIRB is located on Perth Drive, near the Labatt Visual Arts Building.
