About our Conference Logo:

"What better way to celebrate an event than with fireworks! If you have ever been to a fireworks show at an amusement park, sporting event, or Canada Day celebration, then you know that fireworks seem to have a special and beautiful magic to them. Fireworks may seem magical but, in fact, we can thank science for their invention, which led me to the idea for this year’s logo. I thought, what better way to celebrate science than with a logo showing a display of fireworks surrounding the exploding words 'Celebrating Science'." (by Russell Grant, graphic designer)
