TRIUMF is one of the world’s leading subatomic physics laboratories, located right here in Vancouver, BC. They are home to the world’s largest cyclotron particle accelerator, as well as a system of high-energy rare isotope beams. Please join us on November 24, 2017 for a guided tour of TRIUMF laboratories, where you will experience many of TRIUMPF’s experiments and facilities first-hand, as we follow the path of the proton from its origin, bound in a hydrogen atom, to its destination in targets and detectors.
We will be providing a FREE pizza lunch after the tour. Take advantage of this networking opportunity to discuss all the groundbreaking science being undertaken here in the lower mainland.
TRIUMF is located on the UBC campus and transportation will be provided from SFU. Visit the TRIUMF website for directions

Please join us in this year’s Modelling Workshop at SFU on November 7th, 2016. This year we will have two hands-on sessions, including learning to fit impedance (EIS) curves from Dr. David Harrington from the University of Victoria, and usage of the modelling software COMSOL by Priam Fernandes of COMSOL, Inc.
These are free workshops, where attendees can register for both events however it is bring your own lunch (several restaurants available at SFU) and bring your own laptop. Please note that we are limited to 25 registrants for each workshop, with details below:
Instructions from Dr. Harrington:We will use Aliaksandr Bandarenko and Genady Ragoisha’s EIS Spectrum Analyser, which may be downloaded here, and Bernard Boukamp’s KKtest for Windows which may be downloaded here.I will also demonstrate some algebraic manipulations in Maple, so it would be helpful but not necessary to have Maple or Mathematica installed.
