The SCMS 2018 conference committee would like to reiterate that it is very important that you book your flight to arrive at Toronto's Pearson airport on Thursday April 05, ideally in the afternoon.

There is a welcoming reception on the Thursday evening at 5:00 as well. Again, I strongly urge you to not plan to arrive any later than Thursday April 05.
Thanks, more soon.
