Social Program

The conference venue and the program schedule aim to provide daily opportunities that promote conversation, networking and social engagement.

  • On Friday, after the opening session and keynote speaker at 3 pm, there will be an opportunity to mingle with participants in the International Geography Olympiad (iGeo) at their Poster Session, followed by a reception (7:00 – 10:00 PM) with iGeo Team Leaders.
  • After a busy Saturday in our paper sessions, we highly recommend an exploration of Old Québec (6:00 – 10:00  PM).
  • On Sunday, after lunch, the conference dedicates a period to workshop sessions and breakout groups (1:30 – 3:00 PM).
  • We anticipate that you will want to continue with your conversations on Monday, 9:00 – 12:00 AM over a hot breakfast.
