In order to assist you with finding accommodations, the conference organizers have reserved guestrooms in a number of nearby hotels. These special bookings offer congress participants a range of accommodation options in different price ranges. To secure these preferential rates, hotel reservations must be made through Tourisme Montréal's Housing Bureau. Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis. We strongly recommend that you book early -- June is the beginning of the peak tourist season; as well, the the Montréal F1 Grand Prix race will be held immediately following ICA 2013.
The link for this reservation service is now available: Hotel Reservations.

To get from the Montréal-Trudeau International Airport to your hotel or university dormitory, a couple options are available:
You can get a taxi or limousine at the arrivals level near the central exit located in front of the cloakroom, where a dispatcher will assist you. No reservation is required. All taxi and limousine operators working out of Montréal-Trudeau are required to have a permit and to comply with its terms and conditions. The fixed fare of CDN$40 applies to a taxi trip from the airport to downtown Montréal (one-way). The same trip with Limousine service costs CDN$55-60. A number of adapted taxis, for passengers with reduced mobility, are available at the airport; ask the dispatcher for this service. Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards are accepted. Some drivers accept U.S. currency but provincial regulations require customers to pay in Canadian currency.
The 747 bus line service runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, between the Montréal-Trudeau airport and downtown. All conference hotels are within a few blocks walking distance from stop #7, located at the corner of Rene Levesque Boulevard and Jeanne Mance Street. Consult the map shown above. Travel time may vary between 45 to 60 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Wi-Fi service is available on most 747 buses. The fare is $8, and includes unlimited travel throughout STM bus and métro networks during 24 consecutive hours. Tickets can be purchased at an easily identified airport booth using credit cards. The $8 fare can also be paid in cash with exact change on board the bus, but only coins are accepted (no bank bills) so it is much better to buy a round trip ticket at the airport terminal. There are departures approximately every 10 minutes.
The conference center is at the Place d'Armes subway (métro) station.
