Two rising stars at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) are joining an international delegation of scientists participating in the Japanese-Canadian Frontiers of Science Symposium in Okinawa, Japan this week. Chantal Paquet and Alan McConacchie are two of only 30 Canadians included in this prestigious invitation-only symposium. The event organized by the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), the Royal Society of Canada (RSC), and the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR), will feature two days of interdisciplinary discussion on topics as diverse as artificial intelligence, advanced materials and the mysteries of the cosmos.
