Welcome Reception

Courtyard of the Royal Victoria College

3425 Rue University

Join us for a 5 à 7 (which in Montreal means happy hour). We only start at 5:30, hoping that those flying in that day will have arrived by then and fought their way through immigration and Montreal highway construction all the way to downtown!

There will be small appetizers, but you may wish to plan for dinner afterwards. Lots of downtown restaurants are nearby.

Conference Party

Thomson House

A 'cocktail dinatoire' will be followed by a long-standing PlantBioMech tradition: a capella singing in nationally assorted groups.


And then, for some local flavor, we show you contra-dancing! Absolutely no prior dancing skills required. High heels are not recommended. If you want to find out what expects you, check this video.
