    What is a Café Scientifique?

    Remember when you used to spend untold hours sitting around a table over
a beer or coffee with your friends, solving all the problems of the world,
debating all the "big questions" of the day? Café Scientifique is, simply put,
a larger and slightly more organized version of those conversations. It's an
opportunity to bring together researchers with members of the public to spark
a discussion about some of the most interesting - and sometimes contentious -
research currently underway in Canada.
