It is with great pleasure that the Local Organizing Committee and Mr. Carlin, Honorary Chair of the Conference, invite you to attend the CSCE 2019 Annual Conference in Laval (Greater Montreal). Approximately 500 technical papers and case studies have been accepted and more than 700 participants are to be expected.

This year, an emphasis will be put on students and young professionals and they are invited to take part in all the activities and social events of the conference. Follow our website ( and our Facebook ( and LinkedIn ( pages for the latest conference news.

Several events have been planned to complement the conference and to introduce you to the Greater Montreal:

  • A welcome reception at the Cosmodome where you’ll be offered drinks in a unique, stimulating and immersive environment at the center of virtual models of the planets and the solar system;
  • An evening cruise on the St. Lawrence River to enjoy a unique perspective on the City of Montreal, the new Champlain Bridge and the illumination of the Jacques Cartier Bridge. The evening will include dinner, dancing and a festive atmosphere with artistic performances by world-class circus performers;
  • An awards ceremony for students, professionals and Fellowships will take place during the grand banquet on Friday evening. Newly this year, volunteers and students (with full registration) are also welcome to attend the banquet.

In addition to these social activities, the organizing committee has prepared emblematic technical tours of the city of Montreal:

  • The Turcot Interchange project – a budget of 3.67 billion dollars;
  • The Jean-R. Marcotte wastewater treatment plant – 3rd largest in the world.

Two historical sites will be recognized during the conference:

  • The Collector William, the first sewer collector built in North America with an impressive service life of more than 150 years. Participants will be able to attend the inauguration which will be followed by a visit of a section accessible through the Pointe-à-Callière museum;
  • The Montreal Metro, the world’s first metro with exclusively wheeled cars with more than 10 billion entries since its opening.

There is still time to register your business as a conference partner or book a booth. Several opportunities are still available for all budgets. Visit the partnerships page for more details.
