The International Society for Iranian Studies (ISIS)
The Tenth Biennial Iranian Studies Conference
Montréal, Québec, Canada, Hilton Bonaventure Hotel
Wednesday August 6, 2014- Sunday August 10, 2014
The International Society for Iranian Studies (ISIS) is pleased to announce that the Tenth Biennial Iranian Studies conference will be held in Montréal, Québec, Canada from August 6-10, 2014 at the Hilton Bonaventure hotel. Registration begins on the 6th and the program extends until the evening of the 9th.
With over 25,000 Persian-speaking inhabitants, Montréal is home to one of the most vibrant communities in the global Iranian diaspora. As a centre for higher learning, Montréal is second only to Boston in all of North America, with four internationally-known universities and more than two dozen colleges. Famous for its superb restaurants and endless nightlife, Montréal is one of the world’s most lively and multicultural cities.
The Hilton Bonaventure hotel is an architectural gem reflecting Montréal’s unique identity and forward-looking culture. With a courtyard design occupying two levels above the centre city, its plush, quiet, modern rooms look out onto a lush, one hectare Zen-inspired rooftop garden featuring several small waterfalls and a heated pool. The hotel is connected to Montréal’s celebrated “underground city” and excellent metro system, minutes away by foot from the shops of Ste-Catherine Street, the cultural life of the Place-des-Arts, and the old world charm of Vieux Montréal.
