In the similar vein to other Cafe Scientifique forums, we will be inviting local researchers to share their passion with the general public in an informal setting. There will be no need for any scientific background to attend these events except a desire to learn and understand current issues from a scientific perspective. An introduction to the topic by the presenter limited to 10-15 minutes followed by an interactive Q&A/discussion session.
The venue is conducive to small - medium sized gatherings with an emphasis on interaction between the featured speaker(s) and the audience without defined boundaries or electronic aids. We generally meet at 7:00pm on the third Sunday of the month at the Franklin House (upstairs) in Streetsville. Come earlier to share a meal or drink with friends as we have the venue from 6:00pm onwards. The restaurant kitchen closes at 10:00pm so you are welcome to hang around after the meeting.
To start, we will be featuring faculty from University of Toronto, Mississauga Campus. We hope to engage researchers from other institutions in Mississauga. If you have any recommendations on appropriate speakers or topics, you can suggest them in a meetup or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Check outhttp://www.cafescientifique.ca/for more information on Canadian Cafes.
