Participants at the 2014 ASABE/CSBE meeting can view state-of-the art technology by taking part in one of the optional technical tours offered next July in Montréal, Canada.
On July 13, a one-day tour will include several research facilities at McGill University’s Bioresource Engineering Department. On July 16, a half-day tour will focus on a large-scale biomass heating plant at a greenhouse. The day after the meeting, on July 17, two technical tours are offered. The first post-meeting tour includes a large agricultural machinery facility, a sugar shack visit and meal, and a winery. The second post-meeting tour brings participants at a state-of-the-art aquaculture facility and at an innovative water treatment plant. Details are found at the meeting web site under: Agenda / Program, Technical & Local Tours:
Participants should pre-register by June 27 for better planning. After that date, registration will be accepted only on site, at a higher fee. Booking on some of the tours might not be available after June 27. If you have already registered but did not include a tour, take time to read about the tours and perhaps find a useful addition to your own personal agenda. If you decide to add a tour, pre-register by June 27 and indicate that it is an addition to your pre-registration.
Plan to participate in this major event where more than 1,000 engineers and students are expected to exchange on agricultural, food, biological and environmental engineering issues.
