The Cannabis Symposium will be held on Friday October 5. This symposium will provide a national forum to discuss cannabis related sciences & technologies include, but not limited to, cannabis genetics, propagation, production, postharvest and processing, and the use of cannabis for medical purposes. World leading researchers from both Canada and abroad will share their research results, views and visions. The Symposium will close with a discussion panel of government representatives, leading industry players and academics outlining the opportunities, challenges, knowledge and technology gaps, along with solutions in this rapidly developing industry. The symposium will be an exciting venue for both the industry and academics.
Keynote Speakers for this Symposium include: Dr. Jon Page, Dr. Ernie Small, Dr. Hemant Lata and Dr. Linda Parker. View their biographies on our speakers page.

A major criterion in the development of edible horticulture products is the preservation of organoleptic qualities that are preferred by consumers. Emerging trends in this sector include a shift in consumer selections that are based on fresh cut and/or ready to eat options, human health-potential and environmental stewardship. Thus, it is imperative to implement innovative postharvest handling and processing technologies that preserve the overall quality of edible horticultural products, while simultaneously reducing food and packaging waste. In addition, knowledge on the health-promoting phytochemicals in horticultural plants would facilitate the development of novel products for the growing functional food and nutraceutical industry. The CSHS is now accepting abstracts for the Postharvest Storage, Processing and Nutraceuticals Symposium. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Keynote Speakers for this Symposium are: Dr. Vasantha Rupasinghe, Professor and Killam Chair of Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals at Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia, Canada, and Dr. Amit Dhingra, Professor of Genomics and Biotechnology, Dept. Horticulture, Chair, Entrepreneurial Faculty Ambassadors Washington State University, Pullman, WA, U.S.A.

Thursday, October 4th (1:00 - 5:00 pm) Vegetable Symposium
The CSHS invites all engaged in research, producers, teaching, extension, and public services, private sector and stakeholders related to vegetables.
The goal of this symposium is to showcase current research and addressing industry needs. This would include:
· New technologies applied in the vegetable sector provide opportunities to advance pest and disease resistance, precision horticulture production and nutrient stewardship, and increase consumer selections in cultivars and vegetable quality;
· New methods in vegetable research and innovation in vegetable production supports enhanced product quality and marketable yield. Innovative practices can also reduce resource requirements like water, nutrients and pest and disease management.
The CSHS is now accepting abstracts for the Vegetable Symposium. For more details, please contact the symposium co-chairs Prof. Mary Ruth McDonald via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Elaine Roddy via email: email@example.com
Keynote Speaker for this Symposium is: Dr. Cynthia Scott-Dupree, Professor and Bayer CropScience Chair in Sustainable Pest Management. View Dr. Scott-Dupree's and all keynote speakers biographies on our speakers page.
