Getting there

From the airport
By cab (about CAD 40-50; it may be a good idea to ask for a fixed fare because of possible traffic).
By public transportation: take bus 747 Express to Guy St (Stop 2, see, fare CAD 7.50): if you are staying at the Méridien or the Château Versailles both are a short walk from there. To get to the Terrasse Royale and the UdeM you can take bus 165 North at the corner of Guy/Sherbrooke (you can ride on the same ticket), get off at the Côte des Neiges/Jean Brillant stop (about 20 min).

From the train station
By cab: about CAD 15 to the Méridien and Versailles, CAD 20-25 to Terrasse Royale.

If you are driving
Parking available at the Terrasse Royale (it is recommended to confirm with them beforehand), also at the UdeM (Garage Louis Colin on Jean Brillant, just beside the Lionel Groulx building, see map below). Daily rate is CAD 18.

If you are staying at the Meridien or Château Versailles
The easiest way to the UdeM is the 165 bus at the corner of Guy/Sherbrooke. The stop is Côte des Neiges/Jean Brillant (about 20 min).

On Campus

Wed, July 5

All activities will take place at the Bibliothèque des Lettres et Sciences Humaines (access through Place Laurentienne, just across from the Lionel Groulx building, beside the Law building).  The morning panel will be in the auditorium (room 2078) on the 2d floor; the Rare Books collection is situated on the 4th floor.
See directions from Terrasse Royale below; the 165 bus stops right in front so the route is the same if you come on the bus.



















Thu and Fri, July 6 and 7

The conference will continue on the third floor of Pavillon Lionel Groulx, room C 3061. The final reception will be on the second floor of the same building (room C 2081).

 You will find the detailed programme here. Please note that space is limited, especially for the Rare Books workshop. Do send us an email if you are planning to attend.
