Conference: “From Sea to Sea … to Sky! Science & Christianity in Canada”

The Canadian Scientific & Christian Affiliation (CSCA) is holding a one-time special conference at, and co-hosted by, Trinity Western University (near Vancouver BC) from May 11-14, 2018 (dinner Friday through lunch Monday). The abstract deadline has been extended to January 31.

Due to support from Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc., the early-bird registration fee (before March 1) for ASA/CSCA members, including meals, will be $200 Canadian (plus some taxes/fees). On-campus housing for three nights will range from $170 to $350 (taxes included). This conference might make a good spring-season option for presenters and attendees in the western states.
The conference is entitled From Sea to Sea … to Sky! Science & Christianity in Canada. The highlights the breadth of topics within science & faith, the Canadian context (since “from sea to sea,” from Psalm 72:8, is Canada’s motto), the Vancouver site (with its mountains and ocean connected by the Sea to Sky Highway), and our looking to the heavens both in astronomy and in terms of our connection to the God of creation whom we serve in our scientific endeavours.
Plenary addresses are by Dennis Danielson (UBC), Santa Ono (President, UBC), Richard Middleton (Northeastern Seminary), and Robert Mann (University of Waterloo & Perimeter Institute). A Saturday evening Sky Gala features prominent climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe preceded by Janet Danielson’s Six Pieces on a Reverberant Cosmos performed by the Isotones (from Oak Ridge, TN). Saturday and Monday mornings we being with devotions and Sunday begins with a worship service.
