2014 Montreal Fall Graphics Workshop
McGill Gault Nature Reserve

Gault House

Monday 20 October





The Montreal fall graphics workshop 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 similar to last year's event with numerous out of town guests.

The workshop will consist of short talks of 5 to 10 minutes maximum 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 13th of October to permit reviewing before the event.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided. There is also the possibility for out of town guests to stay overnight Monday in the dorms.


The Gault nature reserve is located 40 minutes south of Montreal in Mont-Saint-Hilaire. The address is 422 chemin des Moulins, Mont-Saint-Hilaire, QC, J3G 4S6. Please see these directions for maps and additional directions for getting to the reserve.
