Dear Colleagues and Guests,
On behalf of the Canadian Society for Bioengineering/La Société Canadienne de Génie Agroalimentaire et de Bioingénierie and the local organizing committee, it is my immense pleasure to welcome you to the CSBE/SCGAB 2023 AGM in Lethbridge. We have extended the abstract submission deadline to April 2, 2023 so that you can submit abstracts incase you missed the earlier deadline.
We are pleased to announce two keynote speakers Dr. Mehmet Tulbek (President, Saskatchewan Food Industry Development Centre) and Mr. Trevor Lewington (CEO, Economic Development Lethbridge). Lethbridge College is planning to host a barbeque at the college’s 385 acre research farm where guests will have opportunity to see our irrigation demonstration canal that is a full representative of the infrastructure in our region, diverse irrigation systems and technology, a unique state-of-the-art postharvest storage and handling research site, and field-scale plots for crop production (cereals, pulses, potatoes, and sugar beets). Our initial plan for the technical tour includes visiting our on-campus research facilities and travelling to the St. Mary Reservoir & Dam (infrastructure and history), a Hutterite Colony (crop and livestock production practices and infrastructure), and spectacular Waterton Lakes National Park.
Please mark July 23-26, 2023 in your calendars for attending the CSBE/SCGAB AGM being held in Lethbridge. We look forward to helping you explore southern Alberta (Canada’s Premier Food Corridor) and to host a wonderful AGM.
Chandra B. Singh (Conference Chair)
