The 15th International Peat Congress (IPC) will be held in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia from August 15th to 19th, 2016. The convention, held every four years, will be hosted by the Malaysian Peat Society (MPS) in partnership with the International Peat Society (IPS). The advised deadline for abstracts is the 31st October 2015, but it is suggested that delegates submit in advance of this date if possible. As well as offering the opportunity to talk to tropical peatland experts from all over the world, there will also be a range of different one day excursions, which will provide delegates with the chance to see the spectacular natural environments of Malaysia first hand.
