Call for Poster Presentations

Call for Poster Presentations, 2019

The 10th Canadian Waste to Resource Conference (CWRC) is providing an opportunity for professors and students to showcase their latest research to industry experts, government officials and Canada’s leading waste management companies.


This year, we are once again inviting you to share your insight and recent studies on waste management and recycling with a poster presentation in the main gathering area.


The CWRC is widely recognized across the country as “the place to be” for waste management professionals, so there’s really no better venue to promote your findings.



  • Please, send your request for submission to Michele Goulding by September 18th, 2019.  Accepted submissions (pdf file) must be received prior to October 4th, 2019.
