Local Information
Meeting Location


Montreal, Canada’s largest Francophone city, offers a unique cultural experience to the first time visitor. Travel abroad without leaving the continent as you encounter the dominant French Canadian culture overlaid with British, European and Asian undertones. Walk down any street and you will be assailed by the cosmopolitan foods, languages and people. The summer school will be hosted by McGill University. The campus is conveniently located at the foot of Mount Royal in the heart of downtown Montreal. The AAPM Summer School Lectures will be held in the air conditioned Leacock Auditoriums located centrally on campus. Attendees may choose to stay at the Royal Victoria College Residences, just 10-15 minutes walking distance from the lecture theatres or stay at one of several hotels located nearby.

McGill Campus has easy access to downtown Montreal with a variety of transportation modes (walking, subway and bus) to get you to major city attractions. There are a variety of museums on campus including an Ernest Rutherford museum. This private McGill collection of artifacts dates from the time Rutherford was laying the groundwork for radioactivity experiments. For more information, visit the libraries and museum webpage at: http://www.mcgill.ca/courses-ug/info/libraries/. Hikers will delight in climbing to the top of Mount Royal for a panoramic view of the campus, downtown and the harbour.

Weather and Wardrobe

July weather in Montreal is variable, daytime temperatures ranging from 70 - 90 degrees with humidity. Nights are usually cooler. Casual layered clothing is recommended (cotton shirt, sweat-shirt or fleecy, rain-jacket) to cover all the weather possiblities and to allow maximum flexibility. The lecture rooms will be air conditioned and may be chilly after several hours of inactivity.
