In addition to being a world centre of music psychology, Montreal is also very charming in the summer, bustling with festivals, concerts, art, entertainment, tourist activities, nightlife, and 350 km of bike paths. The summer is by far the happiest season to be here, while hundreds of indoor and outdoor events are packed into one season.

The conference begins on the last day of Festival International Nuits D’Afrique (July 11-23) and ends on the first day of Heavy Montréal July 28-29, 2018. The famous Just for laughs festival and Fantasia International Film Festival will take place throughout the conference.
