The Winter Nuclear and Particle Physics Conference is a national meeting for the Canadian subatomic physics community, with a special focus on providing a forum for junior researchers (students and postdocs) to present their research and interact with groups across Canada. The 2021 meeting is being organized by McGill University and TRIUMF, and as usual will feature sessions focusing on the research areas of interest to the Canadian subatomic physics community, both experimental and theoretical. 

WNPPC 2021 is being organized as a virtual conference with talks being presented via zoom. To keep the spirit of this conference, we will organize virtual social events to connect the community and foster exchange between participants. Junior researcher will have the opportunity to interact with invited speakers and other researchers across Canada to discuss research and other topics in a relaxed environment. 

We are excited to announce the invited speakers:

  • Nahee Park, Queen’s University
  • Joseph Bramante, Queen’s University
  • Matthias Danninger, Simon Fraser University
  • Dennis Muecher, University of Guelph
  • Erica Caden, SNOLAB 
  • Juan Pablo Yáñez, University of Alberta
