2013 Montreal Fall Graphics Retreat - GRAND Café @ McGill Gault Nature Reserve

Gault House

Thursday 24 October



Sponsored by



This second 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 will be a larger event with numerous out of town guests, and will be sponsored as a GRAND Cafe Cafe event.

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. Paper drafts must be prepared for the 17th of October to permit reviewing before the event.


The Gault nature reserve is located 40 minutes south of Montreal in Mont-Saint-Hilaire. Please see these directions for getting to the reserve.
