Latest developments regarding EPICOH 2020

Dear Colleagues,
First, we would like to thank each and every one of you for your collaboration and patience as we are working towards a contingency plan for EPICOH2020.

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.

If you have already registered and paid, you do not need to take further action. Your credit card will be reimbursed next week and you will receive a confirmation email to this effect.

We look forward to the opportunity to work with you to bring EPICOH2020 to life sometime, somewhere, somehow…

The EPICOH 2020 Organizing Committee

From the Workplace to the Population: Exposure and Prevention

Montreal welcomes you warmly to the 28th International Symposium on Epidemiology in Occupational Health, EPICOH 2020.

The EPICOH symposium provides a fertile meeting ground for sharing the latest research findings on occupational epidemiology. It promotes 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. The event has a strong commitment to engaging early-career researchers.

EPICOH is part of the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH).

EPICOH 2020 is organized by the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) and the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS).

Message to All Abstract Submitters

    Thank you very much for submitting an abstract to EPICOH 2020. As we all adapt to the current and evolving situation, the EPICOH 2020 Secretariat is monitoring how the pandemic is unfolding, and the confinement and travel restrictions throughout the world. In light of these extraordinary circumstances, we have put the program planning on hold. We hope to have more specific information about the conference to share with you soon, but wanted to reach out now to let you know that we are considering options, including postponing the EPICOH meeting to 2021 in Montreal.
