The IMCL2018 conference will take place at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario (http://www.mcmaster.ca), with most events taking place at the MDCL (Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Learning and Discovery) building.
Hamilton is the 3rd biggest city in Ontario, Canada with a population of over 500,000. Located at the west end of the Niagara peninsula, Hamilton wraps the west part of lake Ontario and is surrounded by the Niagara Escarpment geological formation which provides abundant green areas and easy access to several waterfalls. Hamilton is conveniently settled almost halfway between Toronto and the Niagara Falls, being approximately one hour drive from each. Day trips to both these outstanding places are a must for anyone visiting the region for the first time.

Hamilton has an airport, John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, but with limited connectivity to cities outside Canada: http://flyhamilton.ca/.
The best option is the Toronto Pearson International Airport in Toronto, Ontario (YYZ). The airport is about 45-60 minutes drive (65 km) away: https://www.torontopearson.com/
