UK-based the Institute of Refrigeration has announced that its headline event, the 7th IIR International Conference on Sustainability and the Cold Chain, or ICCC2022, has extended the call for abstracts to October 24.
The event, which is due to take place online from April 11–13, 2022, will explore cold chain innovation, and developments in refrigeration technology and design. The conference will also do a deep dive into what is being done to build a sustainable cold chain in order to address key UN sustainable development goals, such as economic growth, infrastructure, responsible production, climate action and partnerships.
The conference organisers are looking for papers on the following themes:
- Innovation in the cold chain
- Retail refrigeration, technology development and design
- Building a sustainable cold chain in developing nations.
The event will take place online.
“In light of the continuing uncertainly regarding large gatherings and international travel, the decision has been made to move the International Sustainability and the Cold Chain Conference to an online event,” the IOR says.
“The IOR is building on its experience and success in running online conferences and will be hosting this event in the virtual world. Delegates will take part in an immersive conference experience that is globally accessible.
“As well as the main technical sessions, the conference will offer facilitated coffee lounge discussions, where delegates will be able to interact with expert hosts, ask questions of anyone or everyone on the session, and take part in live polls. We will also offer an area for one-to-one conversations and group meetings.”
Delegates from the developing world and students are able to attend this event at a reduced rate.
