Foreword by the Chair of Scientific Committee

Welcome to IPC 2016!

photoThe 15th International Peat Congress 2016 (IPC 2016) will be held in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia from August 15th to 19th,  2016.

This  prestigious  quadrennial  convention  will  be  hosted  by  the  Malaysian  Peat  Society  (MPS)  in partnership with the International Peatland Society (IPS).

Under the theme, “Peatlands in Harmony- Agriculture, Industry and Nature”, this Congress will bring together  peatland  scientists  and  industry  players  for  discussion  of  latest  research  discoveries  related to  peatlands,  sustainable  peatland  managements,  as  well  as  the  preservation  of  peatlands  and  their natural biodiversity.

The Congress will enable the exchange of ideas, findings, expertise and experiences among scientists and entrepreneurs on the topic of peat and peatlands.

For this Congress, there will be six Congress symposiums which will be chaired by renowned experts. In addition, we will also have a special session on soft soil engineering on peat.

We truly believe that this Congress will be an exciting event to attend in 2016 as it will be the best place to gain insights on the latest scientific research and build network for establishing new future collaborations. Furthermore, it will be a great opportunity to explore and experience Kuching city and the beautiful tropical rainforests of Borneo.

We look forward to meeting you at IPC 2016 in Kuching.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Peter Morin Nissom
Chair of Scientific Committee
