March 31st

30th “Journée des sciences et savoirs (JSS30)”

The 30th edition of ACFAS-Sudbury’s “Journée des sciences et savoirs (JSS)” will take place on March 31, starting at 8:30 a.m. (EST), in a hybrid format. This day is dedicated to promoting research in French, and is open to anyone interested in research. There is no charge, and something special will be revealed at the end of the day!

This year, the JSS offers two events. On the one hand, there will be individual communications where 17 passionate people will present their research in 15 minutes. You are welcome to attend one, several or all of the presentations. Who knows, maybe the presenters (graduate students, researchers and professors) will pique your curiosity!

On the other hand, there will be a research contest, hosted by Éric Robitaille from Radio-Canada, allowing you to attend the presentations of nine graduate students within the framework of the “Ma thèse en 180 secondes” competition. Presenting a thesis is already an achievement; presenting it in 180 seconds is quite a challenge!

Want to attend in person? Make your way to the Executive Learning Center on the 3rd floor of the Fraser Building, on the Laurentian campus (FA-386).

Do not hesitate to contact ACFAS if you have any questions (

Please note that because this is a French event, the poster and schedule are only available in French.
