To whom it may concern,

I just paid my registration for the PEF Summer School 2018. I am wondering if you would send me more information about the location at Mcgill. I look up and I could not find it.
Regards,
Doris

Hi Doris,

We just received our building assignment from the conference organizers. The summer school will take place in the Bronfman Building, 1001 Sherbrooke Street West, McGill University. We still don’t know exactly which rooms we’ll have but there will be signs posted at the entrance of the building when you arrive.

We’ll post the room numbers on this page as soon as they are confirmed.

We look forward to seeing you at McGill in few days.

To whom it may concern,

I have registered for the PEF Summer School 2018 last week but have not received any confirmation from the PEF indicating that I am registered to this event. Would it be sufficient to bring the confirmation of payment?

Thank you,
Stephanie

Hi Stephanie.

Thanks for the note. I followed up with an email to the account you entered in the e-mail field of your comments. The short answer is: yes, your confirmation of payment is all you need.

See you in a couple of days!
