This first Montreal fall graphics retreat brings together students
and faculty to discuss work in progress. The main purpose is for
participants to solicit early feedback on work in preparation for
Graphics Interface and SIGGRAPH. This year we have two special out of
town guests thanks to funding
from GRAND for collaborative
researhc on new inverse dynamics approaches.
The retreat will consist of short talks of approximately 10 minutes
each, followed by up to 10 minutes of questions and discussion.
Presentation slides as well as drafts of the papers, in some cases
early and in others quite polished, are available to all participants
to allow for more meaningful feedback.
Tadja Hall is located on the south side of MacDonald campus.
Here is the Google street view:
building address is 21082 chemin Lakeshore and can be accessed from
Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue or Bai D'Urfe.
Directions for people leaving from McGill downtown:
I recommend taking Route 20 ouest and exiting at boul. Des
Anciens Combattants. Alternatively, you can exit early at rue
Morgan and take the scenic route.

Directions for people leaving from UdM:
Route 40 ouest may be a better option since it's easier to access
for you. Continue west until you reach the boul. Morgan exit.
WARNING: the exit 41 at boul. Des Anciens Combattants is closed!
Your GPS device may send you here, so please watch out. You will
have to take exit 44 at boul. Morgan. Turn left onto chemin Sainte
Marie. and take the road through the farm to reach Lakeshore.
Once you're off the highway, continue south to reach chemin
Lakeshore. Please note that if you reach a bridge and begin travelling
over water, you have gone too far.
