Program Committee Login

The International Conference on Environmental Mutagens (ICEM) has been rescheduled to: August 27- September 1, 2022.  We are hopeful that we can safely gather in person at that time.  To the extent possible, the intent is to keep the current program structure, including keynote speakers and symposium topics. Indeed, the majority of invited keynote speakers and symposium session chairs have already confirmed their participation in the 2022 ICEM.

The Environmental Mutagenesis & Genomics Society (EMGS) will be organizing a 2021 Virtual EMGS Annual Meeting and more information will be coming soon.

Ottawa is Canada’s capital, a dynamic showcase city of more than one million people. Located in Ontario at the Quebec border, it’s a place where you’ll hear English and French spoken in the streets; where you can discover Canada’s proud heritage at impressive national sites and famous landmarks, including the Rideau Canal (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). It’s a city steeped in culture, with world-class museums and galleries displaying stunning national collections and special exhibitions from Canada and around the world.
