The call for abstracts for the 5th CIGR International Conference is now officially open! Under the theme “Integrating Agriculture and Society through Engineering”, the primary goal of this conference is to bring together elite scientists from all over the world, and to provide a unique forum for exchange on the challenges and opportunities in agricultural and biosystems engineering.
The conference will take place from June 14th to the 18th 2020 in Québec City, Canada. Québec City offers a blend of culture and history that is unique in North America. Located along the majestic Saint-Lawrence River, Quebec City is the only walled city north of Mexico and the old part of the town is a UNESCO World Heritage treasure.

The CIGR 2020 local organizing committee is pleased to offer participants the chance to take charge of an entire 90-minute session during the conference. Sessions can consist of a series of technical presentations or they can give more time to an eminent scientist or even take the form of a panel discussion. A Technical Committee will evaluate the suitability of each proposed session and adjustments will be made if necessary to fit the scope of the conference.
Abstracts and sessions propositions must be submitted no later than October 25th 2019. Your abstract should be limited to 250 words.
