April 12: Lassonde Research Day

Lassonde will be hosting the first ever Lassonde Research Day on Thursday, April 12, 2018.  

The goals are to:

  • Celebrate and get to know the diverse research across the many disciplines (break silos/make connections).
  • Increase the number of industry partnerships. We are inviting industry and community partners (existing and prospective) as well as NSERC, MITACS and OCE.

The event will be in a form of a mini conference with poster presentations at the Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence.

If your team would like to participate by presenting your research, you need to submit an abstract to us by March 20, 2018 through this Google form

We have space for at least one poster board per lab (6 ft w x 4 ft h), which could accommodate one large poster or a few smaller ones. In special circumstances, we can try to accommodate more than one poster board per lab. In addition, we can accommodate demonstrations and additional displays (please use the Google form to indicate your needs).

We anticipate that the Research Day will include two sessions (morning and afternoon) based on thematic areas.

We are asking you to please provide us with contact information of your current partners or potential partners that we can invite to the event.

This is also a chance for your graduate students to present their work. We would like to encourage you to strive for a diverse and inclusive representation in your selection of presenters. It is up to the PI to fill out the registration form and indicate which students will be participating.

We are looking for volunteers and input from our community so please feel free to get in touch. We will be reaching out to graduate students to help organize the day.


  • Submit abstract: March 20, 2018
  • RSVP for all: April 5, 2018
  • Research Day: April 12, 2018 all day

We look forward to your participation in the first Lassonde Research Day!
