2021 SNOLAB User Meeting

August 12 – 13, 2021

The SNOLAB User Meeting brings members of the community together to present their work and learn more about research of their colleagues. The meeting will provide overview talks of current SNOLAB experiments and the opportunity for others to present on specific projects they are involved in. This meeting invites participants to network and develop interactions between users. We will have a variety of presentations, workshops and panel discussion including career development and EDI. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the workshop will be hosted remotely. The meeting will take place Thursday August 12th, 2021 & Friday August 13th, 2021. The call for abstracts is open until July 20th, 2021. Prizes will be awarded for the best contributed student talks. Meeting registration is open until July 30th.

The meeting agenda will be updated as details are finalized. Please direct any inquiries to  

Networking workshop:
Networking is a vital professional skill that helps deepen your understanding of people, research groups, organizations, or institutions within your field. Networking is particularly important in the sciences; as you develop your research skills, you’ll want to be a better-known candidate for future positions, or you may be looking for opportunities to collaborate. Whatever your rationale, networking skills will serve you well throughout your career. Join us for a virtual networking event where you will be paired up in breakout rooms to meet new people, ask questions, and spark engagement with members of the SNOLAB Community.

Workshop: “The Quantum Principles of Academic Writing” 
In the language that Physicists can understand — i.e. with equations of quantum mechanics — this workshop will humorously clear up some of the common misunderstandings of science communication in academic writing.  It will unlock the mysterious universe of science writing through the microscopic fragments of various scientific publications. Twice awarded for distinguished teaching (Western University and Laurentian University), Dr. Hoi Cheu teaches Science Communication and has collaborated with numerous researchers in science and environmental publications.
