This year’s Annual Meeting will take place in Montreal, Canada at our excellent facilities across three campuses (Concordia University, Dawson College and McGill University) with ample space for academic and social gatherings. Montreal itself is a wonderful city for a summer event, as a city of festivals including the international Jazz festival, Just-for-Laughs, Formula One Grand Prix, and more. The city has many attractions such as Old Montreal, the Riverfront, the Plateau, St. Catherine Street, and many lovely neighbourhoods with cafes, restaurants, micro-breweries, live music venues and shopping.
