Quick Tips

Weather: Note that April weather in Montréal can be variable and quickly changing. It looks like we will have mild days (10°C) and cool nights (3°C), but check the weather before heading to CHI 2018 as Canadian springs are fickle. En Avril, ne te découvre pas d’un fil.

Transportation from airport: you may use the shuttle service, take a taxi. Once you’re downtown, an easy way to move around is to use the metro.
