Abstract submission is open for the poster session until June 1, 2014

We have now closed registrations.

Due to high demand, we have reached the total number of registrations we can accommodate.

However, if you would like to attend the conference or present a poster, please contact the organizers. We will do our best to accommodate you. Thank you for your understanding.

Conference proceedings will be published in a special issue of the  Canadian Journal of Physics.

Registration for the conference is FREE.

There will also be free bus transportation to Sudbury provided for participants of  Congress of the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) on June 15, 9-00am.

Theory Canada is a satellite conference to the annual Congress of the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP). It serves as a venue for the Canadian theoretical physics community to meet, interact, and share new research results with colleagues from across the country. This event involves both the exchange of new results and ideas with colleagues working in the same subfield of theoretical physics, and also the cross-fertilization between different areas. This is particularly important given Canada's geographical expanse, and the relative isolation in which some researchers find themselves. The Theory Canada 9 conference in 2014 will consist of six thematic oral sessions and a poster session.  The talks are intended to be comprehensible to researchers in theoretical physics who are non-experts in the field. 

Theory Canada 9 will be held on the campus of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Canada.


The city is home to Wilfrid Laurier University, the University of Waterloo as well as the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (PI) and is a strong hub for research in physics. Waterloo lies in the heart of Canada’s Technology Triangle. The region is internationally recognized as a hub of advanced technology, and also has one of Canada’s highest concentrations of manufacturing activity. The business base is diverse, ranging from large multinationals to countless small start-up companies on the cutting edge of innovation. There are roughly 800 companies in the high-tech sector in Waterloo including global leaders such as Google, Maplesoft, ComDev, Christie Digital, OpenText and others.
