2018 CMES Conference
We invite members of the public, media and academia to attend the 2018 Canadian Municipal Election Study Conference. There are no registration fees, but we ask that you register using the form below so that we can make appropriate arrangements for snacks and lunch (both of which will be provided free of charge).
A list of planned presentations is found below, and the papers themselves will be posted one week before the conference. We will spend 40 minutes on each piece, leaving ample time for discussion. We encourage attendees to familiarize themselves with the papers prior to the conference.
