Following ArcTrain summer school 2015 in Labrador, a series of conferences on 'The Reality of the North' was held at UQAM Coeur des Sciences on August 31st and September 1st. The conferences focused on the biophysical environment of the North and socio-cultural aspects of human settlement in the Arctic. Reknowned researchers shared their knowledge concerning neo-eskimo and paleo-eskimo migrations, Inuit culture, architecture, living habits in the North, social, economic, and political issues.
