As you know, CIGR 5th International Conference, already scheduled to take place in Quebec City in 2020, has been postponed from May 10 to 14, 2021 due to the declared pandemic affecting the entire world. Although we would like to warmly welcome you to our beautiful city, the local organizing committee has decided to move to an online virtual event. The online event will provide the agricultural and biosystems science community with a forum to share and exchange the latest results and developments, as well as to outline future challenges and opportunities. We are currently working on redesigning the program and on the technical aspects of a virtual event. Full details for authors and participants will be available on the event's web page in early 2021.

The CIGR local organizing committee wishes everyone a happy holiday season and looks forward to seeing you in May 2021 in virtual mode.

Stéphane Godbout
Chair of the 5th CIGR International Conference 2020
