The Conference Venue


ICPEAC 2023 will be held in the Shaw Centre, Ottawa’s award-winning convention centre opened in 2011. The Shaw Centre was built to be as environmentally friendly as possible, for example by collecting more than 3.5 million liters of rain water for the toilets. If you look carefully you will see that the shape of the Shaw Centre resembles a tulip blossom lying on its side, paying tribute to the importance the tulip plays in Ottawa’s history as well as honouring the annual Tulip Festival.

The Shaw Centre is beautifully located alongside the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and boasts spectacular views of Ottawa’s city centre and Parliament Hill, the home of Canada’s federal government.

You can take a virtual 360-degree tour of the Shaw Centre here.

The centre is directly connected to the upscale Rideau Shopping Centre with a large modern food court, supermarket and access to Ottawa’s single subway line.

The tutorial lectures will be held on the campus of the University of Ottawa.
