After numerous Congresses, Joint Meetings, Workshops and Conferences in around the world, the 2014 CORESTA Congress will be the first ever to be held in Canada, and more specifically in the heart of the beautiful Old Quйbec City
The theme of the Congress is "Building on experience to shape the future". In choosing this theme, the CORESTA Scientific Commission wished that the Congress focus on the knowledge gained in tobacco science and how it might be applied in the future. The Congress programme will feature feedback on the activities and learnings of the working groups of CORESTA and senior colleagues will be contributing to Workshops. Both experienced and new scientists will benefit from the high-level presentations and the added opportunity to network and build inter-generational links.
For over half a century, CORESTA has been organizing yearly events for tobacco scientists to share knowledge and experience. CORESTA experts have been initiating the development of Guides, Collaborative Studies and Recommended Methods leading the way to a number of current ISO standards and best practices for the tobacco community worldwide.
CORESTA’s mission is to promote international cooperation and gather together top level scientists and partners involved in all tobacco topics. Whether you are working in the field, a laboratory, a big company, a small institute, a university or a government agency, whether you are concerned with tobacco cultivation, diseases, agrochemical residues, analytical methods, statistics, consumer behavior or regulation of conventional or electronic products, this is your meeting. The 2014 Congress theme will focus on how the work done in the past can provide the basis for the future of our industry.
For both newcomers and regular delegates, the CORESTA Congress offers a unique opportunity to:
learn from international experts,
present and explore the latest evolution of tobacco science, technology and products,
participate in workshops and network with scientists from all around the world,
share your experience and know-how,
gain up-to-date-knowledge on regulatory issues,
experience Quebec and the Canadian way of life.
This year's Congress is being hosted by CORESTA and the venue is the Chвteau Frontenac, the iconic landmark of Quйbec, which will provide all necessary amenities and be the most convenient place to stay. The date is 12-16 October, the time of the year when Canada bedecks itself with a burst of autumn colours.
