Latest developments regarding EPICOH 2020

After extensive consultations with members and key partners, and consideration of possible pandemic scenarios, the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) has made the decision not to move forward with an in-person EPICOH conference at the end of August 2020.

The feasibility of organising a virtual conference in 2020/2021 or of holding an in-person conference in 2021 independently from IRSST is currently being considered. However, the sustained uncertainties around the pandemic do not allow us to make a decision at this time. All abstracts received have been evaluated. Should we be able to hold a meeting in the foreseeable future, we will confirm with you whether you would prefer to keep the abstract you have already submitted, or submit another one, to be considered for the rescheduled meeting. We may contact you at a later date to seek your opinion about future plans and will also inform you of any decisions about how we will proceed.  Information will also be posted here.

Under the theme From the Workplace to the Population: Exposure and Prevention, this conference will promote exchanges between researchers and stakeholders from the broad field of work and health, including epidemiologists, exposure scientists, industrial hygienists, toxicologists, occupational physicians, health services specialists, public health department and health agency representatives, and policy makers. Moreover, the event has a strong commitment to engaging early-career researchers.
