The conference will be held at one of Canada's most prestigious universities, the world-renowed McGill University, which is itself one of the famous Montréal tourist attractions.
In addition to the historical and pleasant McGill University campus, with its famous Redpath Museum, the attendees will also be able to enjoy the beauty of Old Montreal, Saint Lawrence river cruises, hikes and strolls on Mont-Royal, the ‘mountain" in the heart of the city and next to McGill, explore numerous museums and art galleries, quarters and perks of Little Italy, Chinatown, shopping on Saint-Catherine street or enjoy the best restaurants in Canada as well as the rich nightlife of stand-up and live music and bars/clubs. The city offers plenty of ways for commuting by public transport (metro and bus), electric bicycles (Bixy), or cars (Uber, taxis, etc).
