Perimeter Institute, and John Matlock, Director of External
Relations and Outreach, will announce details on June 12th, 2009, of
an innovative, public science festival coming in October, 2009.
For 10 exciting days this October, Perimeter Institute’s Quantum to
Cosmos: Ideas for the Future festival will take audiences from the
strange world of subatomic particles to the outer frontiers of the
universe – examining fascinating topics in detail, such as new forms
of quantum communication, scientific visualization, green
technologies and space exploration.
The festival will commemorate the 10th anniversary of Perimeter
Institute’s creation, will contribute to Canada’s National Science
and Technology Week activities and will be one of North America’s
premier events during this International Year of Astronomy.
Quantum to Cosmos (Q2C) will transcend traditional festivals by
