How to Register 

It is our wish that students and post-docs sign up for each workshop they wish to attend.  If at the last minute you find you are indeed able to come to the workshop then that is fine, provided that their is space.  You will be asked however, to sign up officially online after the session is over, so we can mark your attendance accordingly. You have till 10am the next day only to do that.

If you register and then are not able to come, please go back into the system and cancel. If workshop registered numbers are large, we will look for a bigger room, so knowing proper numbers makes that easier for us.

For workshops where there is a separate registration, such as QUIC or Mitacs, you will need to register directly with them (for Mitacs see details below).  Your -participation in the workshop however is reliant on confirmation from them only.  We will be provided an attendance roster for all those confirmed and attended for our records.

As with any new system, we are endeavouring to find any issues early.  If at any stage you have difficulty registering, please contact Colette at the SGS office on steerc@queensu.ca   

Thank you for your help.

Registering for Mitacs workshops

Registration for Mitacs workshops:
1. You must register with Mitacs via their website and wait for confirmation of participation from them. Mitacs are the only ones to advise whether you can attend the workshop or not. 

2. You will not be able to sign up via our Expanding Horizons registration system.  The School of Graduate Studies (SGS) will be provided a list from Mitacs of who has registered. The SGS will then add you to the Expanding Horizons system to allow us to mark attendance so we can credit you for the course.


Queen’s is committed to an inclusive campus community with accessible goods, services, and facilities that respect the dignity and independence of persons with disabilities. The School of Graduate Studies, Expanding Horizons workshop series is available in an accessible format or with appropriate communication supports upon request.
