The conference will take place at the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel, one of Montreal’s most iconic landmarks. The hotel has recently been renovated from top to bottom as an innovative business campus that is designed for conferences and meetings and to facilitate networking among attendees.
The conference will take place in rooms that are on three floors of the hotel.
- Registration will be located on the Mezzanine Floor, directly above the lobby’s reception area.
- The conference plenary sessions, most conference sessions, and most co-located events and larger workshops will take place on the Convention Floor, which is directly above the Mezzanine Floor.
- Some conference sessions and special lunch events (the student-industry networking lunch, and the Rose Festival) will take place in meeting rooms that are off the Lobby (across from the hotel’s bar, for those of you who know where that is).
- Some workshops and community events will take place in meeting rooms on the third floor, directly above the convention floor.
Travel between the Lobby, Mezzanine, and Convention Floors is possible via the circular staircase, escalators, and elevators.
See the Accommodation page for more information on how to register.
The main advantage is that hotel is the center of conference activity, allowing you quick access to the programs and functions, as well as the ability to network easily with other attendees. Staying at the conference hotel will also increase your chance of social encounters with other attendees.
We hope that the low, negotiated room rate is an added incentive to stay at the conference hotel. The conference hotel rate is very favorable, and the lowest rate available to the public. The conference hotel rate includes free Wi-Fi and complimentary access to the health club. [If you wish to arrive early or depart later, you can also enjoy the room rate three days before or after ICSE.]
Another advantage of staying at the conference hotel is that it helps the conference meet its contractual obligations to the hotel, and thus staying at the conference hotel will prevent the conference from paying penalties for empty rooms; the benefit to you and all other attendees will appear in the form of better coffee breaks, food, etc.
