For the 26th edition of "Entretiens Jacques Cartier" – which covers scientific, technological, economic, social, cultural and political topics – three colloquiums have been organized by Greater Lyon and Montreal.

"The World Is Made of Stories: How Contemporary Artists Formalize the Virtual Tale" was a colloquium scheduled for November 22 at the Vaulx-en-Velin Planetarium. It was organized by the Lyon Contemporary Art Biennial and the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art.

Greater Lyon and the City of Montreal are jointly organizing a colloquium entitled "Intelligent Cities: Digital Infrastructures, Open Innovation and Sustainable City Development", at the Lyon Hôtel de Ville (City Hall). This colloquium featured experts from France and Montreal, as well as from Barcelona and Amsterdam. The colloquium will be continued in the 2014 edition of "Entretiens Jacques Cartier", which will be held from October 2-7, 2014, in Montreal.
