YBhg. Datuk / Prof. / Dr. / Sir / Madam,


This is to announce that the Soil Science Conference of Malaysia 2020 (SOILS 2020), initially scheduled on 7-9 April 2020, has to be postponed.

This decision was made in consideration of the health and safety of speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, participants and visitors in view of the evolving COVID-19 situation. A recent post from Ministry of Health, Malaysia on 11 March 2020 has urged all parties to postpone any mass gathering as WHO declared the coronavirus outbreak as a global pandemic.

Our sincere apologies for any inconveniences caused due to the postponement. We wish to thank all speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and participants for your support towards the event. We will keep you informed of a new date and look forward to your continuous support. Should you have any queries, kindly contact the Secretariat for further details.
