The workshop will be held in the auditorium at the new SNOLAB surface facility building. This is at the SNOLAB site at INCO's Creighton mine #9 shaft in Lively near Sudbury. See the following map "Directions to SNO" for directions to the SNO site. Also see "Directions to SNO from airport". Please be sure to very strictly obey traffic signs while on INCO property (eg. stop signs and speed limits).
