IAU 15th General Conference


Higher Education: A catalyst for innovative and sustainable societies

With some 300 participants and speakers already registered, we would like to reassure you that the Conference will not be adversely impacted by the sad passing of the much-loved Thai King His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Rama IX, which has brought great sorrow to the country.

As the Conference approaches, our Thai hosts have requested that we invite all participants to respect their period of mourning by wearing black, grey or white clothing during the event and for the men to wear a black tie.  Moreover, the period of mourning also means that some of the planned festivities may not take place. However, the Gala Dinner on 14 November will proceed as planned but may be somewhat less festive.
