Dear all,

Assalamu alaikum wrh wbt

As announced earlier, IFE is adopting the annual conference previously organised by IHE (now CHE) beginning this year. The purpose is to provide a forum of knowledge sharing and interactions between all levels of researchers within the group. As such we would like full participation from all PhD students in oral/poster presentation of the conference. It is a national level conference. Selected paper will be published in special issues of Journal Teknologi, International Journal of process systems engineering (inderscience, non-index), or any other journals deemed appropriate.

We need to form the organising committee:

4th. Conference on Emerging Energy and process technology (CONCEPT)

1. Chairperson: Dr Umi Aisah Asli
2. Deputy Chairperson:
3. Secretary: Nazlina (assisted by Noormaiza)
4. Treasurer: Fadhzir
5. Logistics:
– Salmah
– All other RO’s within IFE
6. Scientific Committee (for publications etc): 2 or 3 members from each RC is required to form . RC directors, please nominate the members.

Dr Umi is finalising the survey of venue. once we finalise this, we will seek approval from the university, and appoint all members accordingly.

Preliminary info:

Venue: A Famosa Resort
Fee: RM550 per person for student. The fee covers everything including accommodation (twin sharing) and all meals (2 lunches, dinner, tea break etc).
Members of IFE will attend 1 day earlier since we are going to have our end of year retreat in the same place one day before CONCEPT.

Brochures, etc will be made available for arrangement with RMC etc.
