The Coast to Coast (C2C) Seminar is an hour-long presentation given on a scientific topic and is made accessible to audiences at a number of remote sites across Canada through collaboration technology.

The Players

The Coast to Coast Seminar Series reflects its growth across the country. Initially the Western and Eastern sites were the IRMACS CentreSimon Fraser University, and D-Drive from Dalhousie University exclusively, but as the series grew, and included other universities, presentations in the series have also come from the University of British Columbia, the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary, the University of Lethbridge, and the University of Manitobain the West, and from Acadia UniversitySt. Francis Xavier University,Memorial University of Newfoundland, the University of New Brunswick,McMaster UniversityBrock University, and the University of Toronto in the East.

The ACEnetHPCVLSciNet, and WestGrid networks distribute the series.

The Goals

The Founders, Drs. Peter and Jonathan Borwein and Dr. Veselin Jungic, created the Coast to Coast Seminar Series with the intention of providing an opportunity to scientific communities from various Canadian universities to collaborate and share their interests. The secondary goal was to set the standard for these types of events and to explore further the possibilities of the use of the available technology. As the series has grown in the number of collaborators, presenters, and audience members, so has the number of goals. Learn more.
