The workshop will be held at Polytechnique Montréal, Montréal, from August 29 to August 30, 2022. Polytechnique is located on the campus of University of Montréal, which is easily accessible by public transportation. This page provides campus and building maps.

Getting There

The oral presentations as well as the registration desk will be located in J.-Armand Bombardier building, pictured below (Google map link).


Since most hotels in Montreal are located in the downtown area, you will probably need to use public transit or a taxi to reach Polytechnique.

Public Transit

By metro, get off at station Université de Montréal (Blue line). Take a left as you exit the turnstyles, then as you near the exit, keep right to go up the escalators towards Université de Montréal. Take a left at the top of the escalators, then a right as you exit. Walk about 400 meters to reach the J.-Armand Bombardier building. Alternatively, when you manage to reach any Polytechnique building, the Security staff will be able to direct you.

For other options, Google Maps and Apple Maps have public transit itineraries for Montreal.

The same tickets are valid on buses and on the metro. A single ticket is sold for 3.50$, and two tickets for 6.50$.


A taxi can be slightly faster than public transit, and simpler. The fare from the downtown area should be 15-20$.

Personal Car

For parking, see Polytechnique’s official page dedicated to parking.


The only hotel within walking distance of Polytechnique is Hotel Terrasse Royale. A special rate of 129$/night (excluding taxes) is available by calling the hotel at +1-514-739-6391.
