John Ellis, Clerk Maxwell Professor of Theoretical Physics at King’s College London and leading physicist at CERN will be speaking at Laurentian University's Fraser Auditorium starting at 7 p.m. June 16.
He's an expert on how particles, such as the Higgs boson, can be produced and detected in particle accelerators.
The speech is part of the Canadian Association of Physicists Annual Congress, being held at Laurentian this month.
Laurentian and SNOLAB have teamed up to host the congress, 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.
Since 1945, the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) has been the embodiment of the community's efforts to highlight achievements in Canadian physics and to pursue scientific, educational, public policy and communication initiatives that enhance the vitality of the discipline.
Tickets to Ellis' lecture are 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.
