 2018 Wild Quantitative Genetics Venue and Accommodations

Meeting Location 

The AGA Symposium will be held at Hart House on the University of Toronto campus in Toronto, CANADA.

Hart House was gifted to the University of Toronto in 1919 as a gathering place for students. It was one of the earliest, and is still one of the most beautiful student centres in the world. An historic site, Hart House has been referred to as “the finest example of Beaux Arts Gothic Revival in Canada.” Standing northwest of Queen’s Park, this distinguished building is the visual icon of the University of Toronto.

Our opening reception will take place in the Music Room, a gorgeous room rich in looks and sound, featuring a grand piano, fireplace and windowed alcove. All lectures will take place in the appropriately named Debates Room.
