coc2018  There are just a few days left for this conference to happen and the program is already published. According to the organizer Ms. Bokowa, there are already registered 40 people, but they are expecting to have around 50 people. Not too bad attendance for this very first conference organized by the company Environmental Odour Consulting (E.O.C.). This 2-day Conference will be held in the Coast Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre in Calgary, Canada, the 4th and 5th December 2018.

  This is not the first conference that EOC organizes, but it is actually the first one that Ms. Bokowa, head of this company based in Canada does in their own country. In this case the conference will take place in Calgary and very well-known people in the odour world like Mike McGinley from St. Croix Sensory,, Jennifer Barclay from Atmospheric Science Global, Jacek Kociel from the Iowa State UniversityPhilippe Najean from Department of Water and Environmental Regulation of the Government of Western Australia and of course Anna Bokowa will be there. Some less known people, but also with a wide experience in odour management will do some presentations, among them Christopher. J. Scullion and Angie Wagner from Trinity Consultants, Bart Kraakman from CH2M HILL and Chris Bydder from the Environment Protection Authority of Victoria, Australia. Check the list of speakers here. As you can see, the editor of this website will also attend this event.  If you want to know more about COC 2018 check the program here.

  A couple of workshops has been organized the previous day of the conference. The first one will deal with Odour Legislation and Odour Assessment and the second one with odour from the agriculture sector.

   A special session on odours management and legislation of cannabis will take place during this event.

What are cookies?

   A cookie is a text file stored in a user’s web browser on any device they use to access a website that holds information regarding the user’s visit, such as preferences. When the user returns, the browser provides the cookie with the stored information to the site.

What cookies are used for?

   Cookies are used for adjusting a website’s content to fit a user’s preferences and optimize the website. They store useful information that improve the user’s experience of a website. They are most commonly used for:

  •     Recognizing the type of device a user is browsing with and any preferences applied to optimize the website specifically for the device.
  •     Creating statistics that help website owners to understand how their users interact with their website, which allows them to improve their structure and content.

What types of cookies are used?

Persistent cookies remain on your hard drive for a period of time specified in the cookie’s file parameters or until removed manually. When you return to a website and it requires you to login again despite previously storing your login information, it is usually because the persistent cookie expired; this helps to increase security while maintaining accessibility.

   Session cookies, on the other hand, are used temporarily and expire once the website or browser is closed. They are used to track user activity on a website during a single visit. When a website requires that you verify your age or location once every visit before allowing you to view content and without requiring additional personal details, that is a session cookie at work.

Do cookies include personal data?
