ALBANY, NY -- The Cleaning Industry Research Institute (CIRI), in association with The Experience Conference and Exhibition, has announced that the 2020 CIRI Science Symposium will be held on March 31 in Cincinnati.

The CIRI Science Symposium is an annual gathering featuring presentations delivered by industry leaders and research scientists. This year’s symposium will feature four sessions, each consisting of a series of short "lightning" presentations followed by an extended and lively Q&A panel discussion:

Session 1: Pandemic Preparedness — Coronavirus and More
This session, literally grabbed from the headlines, will explore the technical, communication and training needs of industry professionals and the clients they serve.

Session 2: Measuring Clean
In this important session, research professionals will look at various means used to measure cleaning efficacy.

Session 3: Strategies for Odor Control and Elimination
Processes to be examined include ozone and related technologies, the impact of high-performance cleaning and measurement on odors, and characteristics of wildfire odors and strategies to eliminate them.

Session 4: Delving Deeply into Disinfection
Presenters will examine products and processes used to disinfect the indoor environment and protect human health.

Symposium Presenters:
Dr. Eugene Cole • Patty Olinger • John Richter • Ashleigh Bope • Dr. Gary Rosen
Dr. Steven Spivak • Brad Kover • Sarah Haines • Steve Hengsperger • Jeremiah Gray

The Cleaning Industry Research Institute (CIRI) began in 2005 as an idea shared by several visionary pioneers. CIRI is the only independent and impartial institute focused on cleaning and building maintenance research. Its purpose is to improve cleaning and restoration outcomes and indoor environmental quality (IEQ) for all indoor environments. CIRI is a 501.c.3 nonprofit scientific, educational and research institute recognized for its groundbreaking cleaning science and research programs. As such, CIRI serves the dual purpose of serving both the “public good” as well as the cleaning and restoration industries.

CIRI does not compete with existing trade organizations or associations. Rather it serves a unique, complementary role and seeks to work with leading industry groups such as ACI, AHE, APPA, BSCAI, CRI, IAQA, IEHA, IICRC, ISSA, NADCA and RIA.
