The Summit takes place on the beautiful and spacious Couer des Sciences / UQAM campus in Montreal centre-ville very close to Place des Arts. We will be occupying several spaces in the campus, but the main entrance and registration will be in the “Chaufferie” building which will also act as the ‘lab’ or community space. Please see attached map for access routes.
