With the COVID-19 virus being declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, the Canada and Quebec governments have put in place several temporary mesures to limit the propagation including the interdiction to held events and Canada's border closing.  

As the situation is evolving very quickly and unpredictably, the Local Organizing Committee has decided to POSTPONE the event to MAY 10-14 2021.

Registration is closed until August 31, 2020. Abstract submission is re-open until February 1st, 2021.


Authors and registered participants, please see our Continuity Plan.

The International Conference of the CIGR is organizing the 4th international Symposium on Gas Emissions and Dust from Livestock (EmiLi). The EmiLi symposium brings together research scientists and agricultural engineers specializing in this field from all over the world.

For more information on abstract submission and deadlines, see the Author Guidelines.
