TRIUMF Science Week 2021

TRIUMF Science Week 2021

August 16-20, 2021


Registration is now open and will close on August 12, 2021!


This year Science Week will take place as a virtual event which proved to be a very successful format in 2020.

Science Week 2021 will feature two main streams:

  1. Celebrate recent achievements: We want to celebrate the achievements during the last challenging year, with a particular focus on highlighting Early Career Researchers (ECR), who have lost a lot of opportunities for networking during the past year.
  2. 20-Year Vision Community Engagement: We want to share with the community what we have heard in the Listening and Visioning Phase of the 20-Year Vision Development and outline the draft 20-Year Vision framework.

Science Week 2021, which will end with the Users Group Annual General Meeting will be structured as follows:

  • Monday
    • Keynote and ECR talks on EDI, and celebrating science highlights Nuclear Physics, Life Sciences, Quantum Materials, and Accelerator Science. 
  • Tuesday:
    • Keynote and ECR talks on Particle Physics, Scientific Computing, and Science Technology
    • Afternoon poster sessions and virtual networking event
  • Wednesday:   
    • 20-Year Vision Topical Group summaries from Subatomic Physics, Accelerators, Site Development, Quantum Technologies, and Scientific Computing
    • 20-Year Vision Round Tables on Subatomic Physic and the Canadian Big Science landscape
  • Thursday:
    • 20-Year Vision Topical Group summaries from Quantum Materials and Life Sciences
    • 20-Year Vision Round Tables on Research supporting Sustainability, People & Skills, Life Sciences, and Innovation
  • Friday:
