Conference & Opening Ceremony

SOMA is proud to announce that our 2019 conference will once again be taking place on the University of Toronto's picturesque downtown campus. Located just northwest of Queen's Park, delegates will be able to explore both the internationally-ranked University and one of the most multicultural and cosmopolitan cities in the world. Our location is also easily accessible by subway from either Museum or Queen's Park station.
