Seminario Cali   The preliminary agenda for the International Seminar on Odour Management, to be held on 20 and 21 November 2019 at the Western Autonomous University (Universidad Autónoma de Occidente), in Santiago de Cali, Colombia, is finally here.

   As we had already announced months ago, the week before the conference in Santiago de Chile, OLORES.19, the International Seminar on Odour Management will be held in Cali, Colombia, on the 20th and 21st of November 2019. This Seminar is being organized by ACODAL Seccional Occidente (the Colombian Association of Sanitary and Environmental Engineering) and supported by the Universidad Autónoma de Occidente of Cali, and the Colombian companies Gestión y Servicios Ambientales Ltda., IncoAmbiental, Tratamientos Químicos Ambientales, your favourite website and the International Odour Managers Association AMIGO.

   In Colombia, beginning with Resolution 1541 of 2013 establishing permissible levels of air quality or immission, the procedure for the evaluation of activities that generate offensive odours and dictate other provisions, and the Resolution 2087 of 2014 adopting the Protocol for the Monitoring, Control and Surveillance of Offensive Odours, an important line was established to start with the management of offensive odours. In accordance with this, ACODAL proposed this international seminar to provide a basis for the knowledge of the generation of odours, forms of identification, measurement and control systems, successful experiences in the control of odours and intervention protocol when complaints are made.

   The city chosen for this Seminar was Santiago de Cali, capital of Valle del Cauca, a department located in the southwest of Colombia, the center of the main sugar region and one of the most important industrial and commercial centers of the country.

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.

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.
