via the Indo-Pacific Prehistory Association: IPPA2022 will be organised in November 2022 in Chiang Mai, Thailand! It’s just a first announcement for now, and I’m sure more details will follow in time to come. I will be part of the organising committee because of my work at SPAFA.
It is my pleasure to announce the next IPPA Congress. The Executive Committee voted to support the Thailand proposal to host the 2022 IPPA Congress:
The Congress will be held at the Le Meridien Hotel, Chiang Mai from the 6th-12th November 2022.
The successful Thai application to host the Congress is a joint project between Silpakorn University, Fine Arts Department of Thailand, SEAMEO SPAFA and the Princess Maha-Chakri Sirindhorn Anthropology Centre.
Further information will follow on the website over the coming months as we make progress in the organisation.
As is IPPA policy, the Association will have a new president. We thank co-Presidents Dr. Nguyen Chiang Hai and Dr. Phanh Thanh Hai for all their hard work in organising and implementing the very successful 2018 IPPA Congress. Their four year term (2016-2020) is now completed. We welcome our new President: Professor Rasmi Shoocongdej (Silpakorn University). Rasmi will lead the organisation of the 2022 Chiang Mai Congress.
