eFlash: Call for 2018 CAP Congress Abstract Submissions

We are now accepting abstract submissions for contributed oral and poster presentations for the 2018 CAP Congress to be held at Dalhousie University in Halifax, N.S. from June 10 – 15, 2018.

Once again, this 5-day Congress will be an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the achievements of physicists in Canada and abroad. Our Herzberg Public Lecture will be given by Dr. Nergis Mavalvala from LIGO/Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and we have an exciting list of plenary and invited speakers as well as presentations from six medal winners. Please mark your calendars now, and bookmark the main Congress website for easy access to updates and program information.

To be considered for an oral presentation, you must ensure your abstract is submitted by the deadline of midnight February 28, 2018 PST. As there is limited time available for oral presentations, we encourage poster submissions. Post-deadline poster abstracts will be accepted if space remains once the abstracts submitted on time have been processed. Please submit an abstract and urge your colleagues to do so, well before the February 28 deadline.

Students are reminded that there are competitions for both poster and oral presentations. CAP membership is required to participate. For more details on the competitions, including instructions on how to enter, visit our student competition webpage.

Visit the CAP Congress website for more information and the link to the abstract system.

A full listing of programming and events will be posted on the 2018 Congress website when it is available. Bookmark this page and check back regularly for updates.

We look forward to seeing you in Halifax on June 10-15.
