Leeds Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a coffee or a glass of wine, people can discuss science that is changing their lives

5 guest speakers will each give a short (but perfectly formed) presentation on their own scientific theory. You will be able to ask questions and debate with all of them. In one evening, 5 topics, covering different areas of science, will be distilled and delivered in small but powerful measures.
Speakers and topics:
Hugh Hubbard - Why the Large Hadron Collider IS responsible for the global financial crash.
Katie Barr - Quantum computing
Steve Bannister - Supernovae: the biggest bangs since the Big Bang.
John Waterhouse - Cosmology: consensus or conspiracy?
Chris Bem - The Three Sciences: re-framing science for a better world

In memory of Duncan Dallas, the founder of Cafe Scientifique (who sadly died in 2014), we will hold a discussion meeting on Science Communication, a subject on which he was a leading thinker.
Everyone who comes along will be encouraged to participate. The discussion will initially be led by Professor Greg Raddick and Associate Professor Bruce Turnbull, both of Leeds University.
