The International Primatological Society (IPS) Congress will be hosted in Kuching, Sarawak in 2022. The conference will facilitate biological and ecological studies on primates around Malaysia and Indonesia, and also spread findings through worldwide publications and conferences.
Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) has been chosen as the official venue and Pullman Hotel Kuching as the official hotel.
Malaysian Primatological Society (MPS) president professor Mashhor Mansor said: "One of the main missions of MPS is to conduct biological and ecological studies on primates around Malaysia and Indonesia, and to spread the findings through publications and conferences.
"As such, the IPS Congress 2022 in Kuching, Sarawak, would allow us to present our latest studies to an international audience."
Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) deputy general manager Nizam Kaderi called the hosting of the congress ‘timely’, as it will help create better awareness of Sarawak government’s efforts in the conservation of primates.
