Détails sur certaines activités de IFW 2022:

1. Visite technique à Montréal : La visite technique du dimanche 12 juin est une visite industrielle d’entreprises et organisation œuvrant dans le domaine des entotechnologie ou de l’entomologie dans la métropole québécoise : Montréal. Les délégués pourront monter à bord de l’autobus soit depuis Québec (7:00 am) ou Montréal (9:30 am). Au programme: La Centrale Agricole, TriCycle Inc., le Jardin Botanique de Montréal, le Centre sur la biodiversité de l’Université de Montréal, la Collection entomologique Robert-Ouelette de même que l’herbier Marie-Victorin.

2. Activité speed dating : Pour faciliter les présentations et les échanges, cette activité vous propose de présenter votre travail et d'apprendre d'un autre en 5 minutes. Nous invitons les entreprises et les industriels à participer, car des représentants d'entreprises seront jumelés à des universitaires, une manière amusante d'établir un premier contact et d'identifier des opportunités. Étudiants et chercheurs peuvent également être jumelés, l'occasion de recruter et de trouver des projets d'études de fin d'études. Cette activité sera également mise à disposition des participants en ligne via la plateforme « gather » https://www.gather.town/. Cliquez ici pour plus d'information sur les activités étudiantes.

3. OECD Workshop to establish standard methodologies for R&D: The proposed workshop seeks to address key issues facing an emerging sector within the agri-food industry, a novel approach for waste bioprocessing that is in line with a growing global transition to a reduced pollution, resource-efficient and lower carbon economy. Indeed, this sector has implications related to critical global environmental issues including greenhouse gas emissions, climate change, those related to food insecurity. In parallel with the requirement for sustainable intensification of food production, the challenges related to food waste need to be adequately addressed, given the negative environmental impact on water, land, energy and other natural resources. Waste organic bioprocessing using insects is a viable alternative to composting and biomethanisation. The successful demonstration of this process to various stakeholders (organic waste generators along the agri-food value chain, regulators involved in managing organic wastes, consumers (animal feed producers), various levels/departments of government) will increase opportunities for adoption of the production and use of insect products within the agrifood industry. This rapidly-evolving sector suffers from a lack of standards for research and development, resulting in unnecessary variability of results and an inability to compare data between studies. This significantly impedes technical progress but also negatively impacts the establishment of rational policies and regulations required to assist this nascent sector. The proposed workshop seeks to establish guidelines in order to standardise research methodologies. It is expected that the harmonisation of fundamental research procedures will assist the sector to evolve in a more coordinated manner and contribute to coherent development of related policies and regulations. This workshop is sponsored by the OECD Co-operative Research Programme on Biological Resource Management for Sustainable Agricultural Systems

4. Health & biosecurity workshop: The health and biosecurity workshop is a special event of 2.5 hours open to both international scientific delegates and local insect farmers. This event will tackle both insect and worker health in insect farms and cover themes like occupational health hazards, pest management, dietary supplements to improve insect firness, entomopathology diagnosis and will draw inspiration from the tools developed over the longer history of veterinary medicine and beekeeping. After each presentation, discussions with the audience will allow interaction between scientists and practitioners, help to understand data gaps and innovation at an international level. This workshop hosted by Louise Hénault-Ethier, Étienne Normandin, Marie-Odile Biancamano-Benoit and Annette Bruun Jensen will welcome both guest speakers and registered presenters and allow to embrace the rapid evolution of health and biosecurity issues in the edible insect sector.  

5. Le marché des insectes comestibles: Le Marché des insectes comestibles est une activité spéciale pour le grand public qui se tiendra au Grand Marché de Québec, un marché alimentaire unique mettant en valeur les produits locaux. Il s’agit d’une opportunité formidable pour découvrir des spécialités locales et des produits innovants à base d’insectes. Cette activité mettra en vedette le célèbre chef et ambassadeur des insectes, Joseph Yoon (www.brooklynbugs.com), qui offrira plusieurs démonstrations culinaires et dégustations dans la cuisine de Mycélium. De plus, il y aura des sessions d’affiches, des activités familiales et des conférences liées aux entotechnologies et à l’entomophagie. Le sommelier François Chartier présentera également plusieurs cartes de saveurs d’insectes basées sur l’harmonie moléculaire pour favoriser la créativité lors de la cuisine des insectes (https://francoischartier.ca). Plus important encore, il y aura de nombreuses entreprises d’insectes, locales et internationales, sur place pour présenter leurs produits, incluant des barres protéinées, des boissons protéinées, des collations ainsi que des aliments pour animaux de compagnie. Ce sera l’occasion idéale pour réseauter, goûter, boire et en apprendre davantage sur le rôle important des insectes dans l’avenir de l’alimentation. On vous y attend !!!

HOW WILL THE CONFERENCE WORK?

The conference will take place in Québec City at the Québec Conference Centre, and the virtual counterpart will be delivered over the Zoom platform. It will be managed by an experienced technical team. The conference platform will offer all the in-person sessions content to the virtual attendees, who will be able to use online features such as text-based chat and a Q&A box for live questions to presenters.

All presentations at the 4th Insects to Feed the World Conference must be delivered in English.

All virtual registered attendees will attend the conference events and navigate between the technical sessions by entering a virtual room via the online program (a link will be sent a few days before the event). 

All onsite presentations, Plenary and Oral presentations, will be presented live from the Conference Centre as scheduled in the online conference program. Speakers will be present for their entire session to answer questions and participate in any discussions with onsite and virtual attendees.

Poster presentations will occur in person at the Conference Centre as scheduled in the conference program. The authors will also have the option to submit a 5-minute video for virtual attendees, which will be available at any time in the online conference program.

Oral virtual presentations and poster virtual presentations must be pre-recorded and will be available at any time in the online conference program. Attendees will have the option to click on the authors’ name to email any comments or questions if the author has accepted the networking option.

All registered virtual attendees can attend all technical sessions and switch from one session to another at will. Virtual participants access the session of their choice by entering a virtual Zoom room via a hyperlink in the online program.

A chairperson will moderate each session. Virtual participants will be able to use a Q&A box to ask questions during the presentations. The session’s chairperson will then select questions from people onsite and from virtual attendees, depending on the time allocated for the discussion, and will read them to the presenter, who will be able to answer verbally during the session. 

All sessions will be fully recorded for post-conference streaming. All registered attendees will be able to revisit the sessions and catch up on the presentations that they have missed for up to three months after the event. We automatically assume that presenters accept that their recorded presentation will be made available to participants for post-conference streaming on the IFW 2022 Conference virtual platform. In case of refusal, presenters must notify us at ifw2022@conferium.com by June 10, 2022.
