There are several city transit buses which go from Toronto International Airport (also known as Pearson International Airport). However, only one offers a fairly uncomplicated route to the area near the University of Toronto campus. This is the 192 Airport Rocket which goes into Kipling subway station. At the station, you would take the subway east to Spadina or St. George stations, which are near the hotels mentioned on this website.
According to the TTC website, there is a vending machine at the airport and you can purchase single fare tickets in Terminal 1. There are two TTC ticket vending machines in Terminal 1, located at the Public Transit area of the Ground Transportation Level, just inside from where the TTC buses stop (curbside, at column “R”). Use Canadian cash or major credit cards any time of the day or night to purchase Adult, Senior/Student and Child tickets. Detach and deposit the ticket portion into the farebox on the bus – retain your receipt portion. Ask the Driver for a transfer if you are planning to continue your trip on another connecting TTC route. If you have exact fare, you may be able to pay the single cash fare of $3.
The venue for the SSEA 2014 Symposium is located at:
The poster session is on Sunday, 6-Nov-2016 (11:00 – 16:30) – on the same day as second part of the Scholar’s Colloquium.
It will take place in the lobby of 5 Bancroft Ave.; the Scholars’ Colloquium presentations will take place in rm. 1050. This event is free and open to all.
The SSEA does not have an official hotel or restaurant for the Symposium weekend. We do point out a few hotels and restaurants close to the venue for our attendees, but we cannot vouch for an attendee’s experience therein.
If you want to view our hotels and restaurant listings, please see the Eat, Sleep, Enjoy page.
The Symposium is held on the 5th of November, 2016 (Saturday) and, like our previous symposia, it focuses on a specific topic, discussed by a roster of invited international scholars. This year, the topic is Masterworks of Ancient Egyptian Art. The ticket that you purchase through the SSEA is for this Saturday event. The Symposium is intended for a wide audience, from interested laypersons (with some background in ancient Egypt) to senior scholars.
The Scholar’s Colloquium is a two-day event that ‘bookends’ the Symposium, being held on Friday (4-Nov) and Sunday (6-Nov). This event is free to attend and allows contributors, who comprise academics and graduate students in Egyptology from all over the world, to present their current research in Egyptology. As such, the presentations do not need to adhere to the Symposium theme but can be on any relevant topic related within academic Egyptological studies. The Scholars’ Colloquium is done by and for scholars and serious students of Egyptology.
