Monday Night

An evening under the stars!

After a day full of professional development, conference delegates will take a trip to the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium located in the largest natural sciences museum complex in Canada. Delegates will be treated to a completely fresh experience of astronomy during the show as well as a networking dinner immediately following.


This immersive show, specially designed by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, an internationally acclaimed artistic duo, will take visitors on a moving journey through the splendours and power of space, set to the entrancing symphonic music of Philip Glass. From the infinitely small to the infinitely large, a cosmic poem on the link between humankind and the Universe.

Tempo - So many time scales

For millennia, humankind lived by the rhythm of the cycles of nature and the skies, but modernity has taken us far from that reality. Tempo lets us to rediscover the cycles of the heavens, immersing us in a Universe evolving over time scales beyond imagining. After following the movement of the stars in the skies in real time, exploring the temporal cycles of the solar system and discovering atomic time, our perception of time on the scale of a human lifetime will never be quite the same!
