Community of Practice on Food Loss Reduction

25th IIR International Congress of Refrigeration

24/08/2019 - 30/08/2019

25th IIR International Congress of Refrigeration will take place in beautiful Montreal from August 24-30, 2019. Montreal is the city where the original Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer (such as CFCs and HFCs) was signed in 1987.

The adoption of this protocol by 196 countries in 2009 put refrigeration technologies at the core of energy and environmental concerns for humanity.

This big and magnificent international event, hosted by the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR), occurs every four years. It will be held for the second time in the last hundred years at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, situated in the downtown core, just a stones-throw from Old Montreal.

The ICR 2019 Congress will be held under the theme of “Refrigeration for Human Health and Future Prosperity”, and will focus on the current issues we are all facing: energy saving and energy efficiency, food supply, health, reduction of global warming and the protection of the ozone layer.

The scientific and industry communities of Canada and the United States will proudly host this Congress and take this unique opportunity to invite international colleagues to come present their latest product development and research, both theoretically and experimentally, in all areas of refrigeration, air conditioning, and sustainable building.

The ICR 2019 Congress wishes to also invite young researchers and students and to give them the chance to showcase the fruits of their research.

All participants are kindly invited to submit abstracts in English or French* between January 15, 2018 and June 28, 2018. Detailed instructions for abstract and paper submission will be available on the website shortly. Authors will receive notification of their abstract acceptance by October 1, 2018. Full paper submission will follow the abstract submission and acceptance.
