I’m sure this is a common refrain among you and your colleagues, but where did 2019 go? Of all the things I learned in 2019, the most important was probably to set realistic expectations so you’re not automatically disappointed when December rolls around. That, and waiting until the day of an event to put together a keynote presentation isn’t “procrastinating”, it is “waiting to read your audience” to allow you to custom build your presentation.
It is time to consider and nominate a fellow member for one of the following awards; The successful candidates will be presented their awards at the CSBE/SCGAB – CIGR conference this summer in Quebec City (June 14-18).

No further extension will be possible.
The call for abstracts for the 5th CIGR International Conference AND CSBE-SCGAB AGM and Technical Conference is open until January 15th 2020! 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.
