Quantum to Cosmos, and a Tiny Bit Beyond

By Sean Carroll | October 13, 2009 7:06 pm

Taking off to the Great White North this week, for a couple of fun events. First it’s to the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, which is hosting the Quantum to Cosmos Festival. It’s ten days of fun and big ideas, and best of all it will all be recorded and streamed live. Check out the program here. I’ll be participating in a panel discussion on big ideas Thursday night, and giving a popular talk on the arrow of time Saturday night. But there’s also a promising panel discussion on cosmology on Sunday (moderated by my favorite science writer), as well as interesting-looking talks by people like Peter Diamandis, Jim Gates, Neil Gershenfeld, Cory Doctorow, and even the other Sean Carroll. Plenty of fun to go around.

Then it’s off to the Francophone sector with me, where I’ll be visiting McGill University in Montreal to give another public talk on Monday night. I don’t know of any recordings there, but the talk won’t be that different from Saturday’s. But if there are any CV readers in Montreal, be sure to say hi!
