Welcome to the International Peat Congress!

Welcome to the 15th International Peat Congress!
Dear delegate,

On behalf of the International Peatland Society I would like to warmly welcome you to Kuching, Malaysia! I am sure we will have an unforgettable Congress and gain a lot - both professionally and socially.

We kindly invite you to the General Assembly of the IPS on Friday, 19 August at 10am at the Pullman Hotel Kuching.

I would also like to welcome you all to attend the meetings of the new IPS Commissions on Economic, Social and Environmental aspects of peat and peatlands, according to your interests, on Wednesday, 17 August at 5pm (parallel to the poster sessions) http://www.ipc2016.com/programme_at_glance.php .

In addition, we still accept articles on your research, professional work or conference reports for our Peatlands International magazine. There is a continuous need for interesting peat and peatland texts. This is an excellent forum to get your article worldwide publicity – with at least 1,500 readers.

And if you are not yet a member of the IPS, please visit our website to learn more from the benefits and join http://peatlands.org/join-us!

I wish you most rewarding Congress and pleasant stay in Kuching. I am looking forward to meeting you!

Kind regards

Hannu Salo
Secretary General
