Yvan Dutil is a Canadian astrophysicist who, together with his colleague Stéphane Dumas, has created a noise-resistant coding system for messages aimed at communicating with extraterrestrial civilization. This system was used in the creation of messages beamed towards close stars from the Yevpatoria RT-70 radio telescope in Ukraine in 1999 and 2003. He is also a member of the Bioastronomy Commission of the International Astronomical Union and of the International Academy of Astronautics's Permanent Committee on the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI).
The history of astronomy also attracts him, as well as the voting system reform and all matters of durable development. He also always asks a lot of questions during the meetings of the Mont Mégantic Research Centre.
