The Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry(CCCG) focuses on the mathematics of discrete geometry from a computational point of view. Abstracting and studying the geometry problems that underlie important applications of computing (such as geographic information systems, computer-aided design, simulation, robotics, solid modelling, big data, and computer graphics) leads not only to new mathematical results, but also to improvements in these application areas. Despite its international following, CCCG maintains the informality of a smaller workshop and attracts a large number of students.

We have been flying in and out of Kingston for quite a while and have our own personal preferences for negotiating this task. The options vary depending on where you are coming from. Toronto Pearson is the most common choice. Other airports you may consider flying to are Ottawa, Montreal or Syracuse. Considerations are cost, convenience, the scheduling of connections. Scheduling is the key, as sometimes an inexpensive bus ride might end up being the most convenient.
Flying to Toronto Pearson gives you the most options for the final leg to Kingston. Note: The only way to directly fly to Kingston is via Toronto.
Note: You will be crossing the international border between the United States and Canada. Please ensure that you have all of the required documentation.
VIA Rail service between Kingston, and Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa.
Kingston is on Highway 401, the main east west thoroughfare in southern Ontario. Kingston is about 300 kilometers from Toronto, Montreal and Syracuse, and 200 kilometers from Ottawa. Kingston does not pose a traffic problem, but the traffic in Toronto can get nasty, and you need to traverse Toronto when driving from the airport to Kingston. The airports in Montreal, Ottawa and Syracuse are all more or less on the Kingston side of those respective cities and traffic will be less of an issue.
Kingston is a small city, distances are short, so taxis are inexpensive. It will cost approximately $20.00 from the airport to Queen's and $15.00 from the VIA station to Queen's.
The conference will take place at the main campus of Queen's University. This is within walking distance of downtown Kingston as well as the scenic Kingston waterfront. Note: Kingston is a summer tourist destination and rooms are hard to find on short notice, so please book as early as possible, and at least 30 days before the event. We have reserved blocks of rooms at the following locations.
We have blocked 25 2 bedroom units. Premium accommodations-Leggett and Watts
Halls are $99.00 per each two bedroom unit per night+ taxes. Each two bedroom unit has two double beds (one per side of the unit) with a shared bath. The bathroom doors have courtesy locks only (not security locks). Each floor also has a common meeting room with full kitchen available for use by the group. It would be best if you could self organize into pairs willing to share a two bedroom unit. You
may also leave your name here so that you can find a unit mate. We will try to help if help is needed.
We have reserved 10 additional single units. Traditional accommodations are $49.99 + taxes per night for a single room with desk, chair, dresser and closet with shared bathrooms on each floor.
Please note: the 2 bedroom units are air-conditioned but the single rooms are not.
Guests can book using either event name or number using this website . Please quote: Event name – Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry or event number - 26324
A block of rooms has been reserved at the rate of $139 + taxes. A personalized Web site for CCCG 2015 Conference occurring (August 9, 2015 - August 12, 2015) has been created. Guests can access the site to learn more about the event and to book, modify, or cancel a reservation from March 23, 2015 to August 12, 2015.
Invite speakers will be staying at The Rosemount. Rooms are $169 + taxes.
