Laurentian University and SNOLAB have teamed up to host this year’s Canadian Association of Physicists Annual Congress. The CAP Congress is the most important general physics conference in Canada. Every year, hundreds of Canadian and international physicists meet at the host university to communicate, present, exchange ideas, promote and discuss physics in Canada. This will be the first time this meeting is held in Northern Ontario.
The Congress includes the Herzberg Memorial Public Lecture and this year features Professor John Ellis, Clerk Maxwell Professor of Theoretical Physics at King’s College London and leading physicist at CERN who is best known for his groundbreaking research into how particles, like the Higgs boson, can be produced and detected in particle accelerators.
On June 16th, the Herzberg Memorial Public Lecture will take place in the Fraser Auditorium at Laurentian University at 7pm. This is a free event hosted by the Canadian Association of Physicists, Laurentian University and SNOLAB. Admission to this event is free, however, it is highly recommended that you pick up your tickets at one of the following locations: the Science North front desk, the Parker Building reception at Laurentian University, or the 84 Station coffee shop.
