Carleton University is located on a scenic campus not far from the centre of 
Ottawa, Canada's capital. Pictures and further information at www.carleton.ca. 
Ottawa is the high-tech centre of Canada. Opportunities for collaborations with 
government labs and the private sector abound. Carleton is close to the Ottawa 
International Airport and schools, hospitals, parks, and other amenities are 
excellent. Ottawa has a rich cultural life; every year there is a blues 
festival, a jazz festival, a folk festival, a film festival, a spring tulip 
festival, Winterlude (a winter carnival), and the world's largest chamber music 
festival. Canada's main cultural institutions are located in Ottawa, including 
the National Gallery, the world-famous Museum of Civilization, and the National 
Arts Centre with its excellent orchestra. The city also has the longest 
skating rink in the world (over seven km long) and is Canadian centre for 
cross-country skiing. The nearest downhill ski area is a twenty minute drive 
away in the picturesque Gatineau Hills.
