Who is invited?

Undergraduate students present their work on a summer research project, honors thesis, or any physics topic of interest, including interdisciplinary physics research.  This year, we are eagerly expanding the conference to include nearby universities in Southwestern Ontario and across the border.

Our keynote speaker will be the director of SNOLAB, Dr. Nigel Smith, talking about SNOLAB’s Nobel prize winning neutrino searches. Registration to present a poster or give a short talk on a research topic is now open and can be completed here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1E7X_JIHSXJ4CWinwp6qUCvflBkcDGnZHJQk41fZJ2rI/edit
