WordCamp Montreal 2012 will be held at UQAM’s Cœur des sciences. This is the same venue as the 2010 and 2011 event, which was lauded in our planning survey as easy to get to, functional and surrounded by sunny greenspace. We’re looking forward to another year of presentations in bright comfortable rooms and lunch in the grassy courtyard.

About the Venue:


The venue is internally-complicated and the different “rooms” are not visible with Google Maps. To avoid getting lost please print out or save this graphic to your smartphone:

Nearby Hotels

Unfortunately, we don’t have any special hotel deals to offer this year. However, our venue’s homepage has a great listing of nearby hotels listed in order of their proximity to the venue. Because the Coeur Des Sciences is right downtown all of these hotels are located in the heart of Montreal and you can easily access downtown, the old port and the metro (subway) system on foot.
