Back by popular demand! 

Our professors had such a great time in Toronto last year,  they insisted on a second round!

One again we're bringing a little bit of the Faculty of Science to Toronto for some casual academic conversations.  Pull up a chair, have a drink and a few munchies on us, and engage in some spirited discussions with various science faculty members.
