FRPT 2023 is a hybrid conference which will be held in Toronto, Canada from on 5-7 December 2023.
The main conference will take place onsite, but we will live-stream the sessions for the attendees who are not able to join us in Toronto.
The Canadian dollar is the currency of Canada. Abbreviations include $, CA$, Can$ or C$.
You can compare your local currency to the Canadian dollar HERE.
Most people need a visa OR an Electronic Travel Authorisation to travel to Canada – not both. Some people may only need their valid passport. Further information is published HERE.
It is the responsibility of FRPT 2023 participants to obtain a visa if required. Conference participants should familiarise themselves with visa requirements well in advance of the event. The FRPT 2023 organisers encourage you to apply for a visa as early as possible, at least 3 to 4 months before the Conference.
Complete information on whether you need a visa and how to apply for a visa to enter Canada can be found on the Government of Canada’s website.
An official personalised letter of invitation will be provided to registered participants as part of the registration procedure. This invitation is prepared solely for the purpose of visa applications and is not a commitment on the part of the organisers to provide any financial support or confirmation of inclusion in the Scientific Programme.
All event activities (including educational sessions, meal functions, exhibit hall, etc.) are exclusively reserved for registered attendees. Non-registered guests (including children, family members, colleagues, etc.) are not allowed in any of the event areas. Badges provided at registration are required for entrance into all functions and will be strictly enforced.
Please do not leave bags or suitcases unattended at any time, whether inside or outside the session halls. Hotels strongly recommend that you use their safety deposit boxes for your valuables.
The Conference Organisers cannot accept liability for personal accidents or loss of or damage to private property of participants. Participants are advised to take out their own personal travel and health insurance for their trip.
