A message from the Academic Convenor

As the Academic Convenor of Congress 2015, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the University of Ottawa and the National Capital area. The theme of this year’s Congress, Capital Ideas, invites us to reflect on the power of ideas to change our lives and our world. As the seat of our federal government and of several national agencies, as the home of embassies and of a large number of international organizations, Ottawa boasts a unique environment rooted in the confluence of people and the intersection of ideas from all over the world.  We thus expect Congress 2015 to be an exciting intellectual hub where ideas will be expressed, shared and implemented!
