SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT
 
The 6th International Conference on Vetiver (ICV-6)
at Da Nang, Vietnam in May, 2015
 
VETIVER SYSTEM: EMPOWERING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
 
Da Nang, Nov 2013
 
In the memory of Mark Dafforn - TVNI Secretary and Scientific Advisor:
 
"We here today have the good fortune to know vetiver, and to know what it can accomplish for agriculture, civil engineering, and the environment. It is our responsibility to spread that knowledge conscientiously, honestly, and thoroughly. I believe we have an historic opportunity to show what a dedicated group can achieve when given the right tool, the right organization, and the right goals. We are building a knowledge base, and in time the concerns will fade. We will stay ahead of the "law of unintended consequences". In the meantime, with Hedge Vetiver, we will change the face of the tropics." - Mark Dafforn
 
Mark Dafforn has left but staying is the inspiration brought by him that will keep the work alive. As the theme of ICV6 was first inspired by his passion and dedication to the development of Vetiver System, we would like to take this event as an opportunity to profoundly recognize and appreciate his contribution.

FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT
 
The 6th International Conference on Vetiver (ICV-6)
at Da Nang, Vietnam in May, 2015
 
VETIVER SYSTEM: EMPOWERING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
 
Da Nang, 5th August 2013
 
In May 2015, Vietnam will be the host for The 6th International Conference on Vetiver (ICV-6) with the theme, “Vetiver System: Empowering Sustainable Development”. The tentative dates are set to be from 5th to 7th May, 2013 at Furama resort in Da Nang, Vietnam.
 
ICV-6 aims at providing an opportunity for academicians and professionals from various disciplines around the globe to meet in Danang city of Vietnam to share, discuss, and learn about the latest Vetiver technologies and applications. Being the host of ICV for the first time, The Vietnam Vetiver Network has confirmed its the role as an enthusiastic member of The Vetiver Network International.
 
The International Conference on Vetiver (ICV) is a scientific event focusing on various  applications of the Vetiver System. Such an event was first held in 1996 in Thailand and extended to other countries under the supervision of The Vetiver Network International (TVNI) and the Chaipattana Foundation. 
 
The Fifth International Conference on Vetiver (ICV-5) in India in 2011 was a great success. It attracted nearly 250 registrants representing 20 countries from around the world, and provided significant opportunities for networking, professional growth and education, as well as business opportunities.
 
Following the success of ICV-5, ICV-6 is expected to have equal or even more participants, as “sustainable development” based on the Vetiver System is seriously considered than ever before in many countries. This conference will be attended by decision makers, researchers and specialists representing the government and private organizations undertaking the global task of “sustainable development”.
 
 
 
The program of ICV-6 reflects those of the past ICVs, which consists of the Keynote Address, Presentations of Invited Speakers and Contributed Papers, Poster Papers, and Study Tours. Social activities such as Welcoming Toast, Reception Party and Farewell Dinner will be organized. In addition, it is hoped that the Organizer will organize an international training course on “Vetiver Handicraft Making” for those who want to have “hands-on” practicum on Vetiver handicraft making” from the most experienced guru from Thailand.
 
Supporting organizations include TVNI, the Chaipattana Foundation, Vietnam Vetiver Network, Da Nang People’s Committee, Da Nang University and many others from the private sectors and Non-Government Organizations. 
 
Further information about ICV-6 will be updated in the Second Announcement, to be published in October 2013.
 
About The International Conference on Vetiver
 
The International Conference on Vetiver is a prestigious scientific forum of worldwide experts in researches and applications of Vetiver System under the sponsors of The Vetiver Network International (TVNI) and Thai Royal. It is hoped that the Chaipattana Foundation, His Majesty the King of Thailand’s personal agency, will, as in the past ICV’s, contribute, in kind and in cash, in the organization of ICV-6.  During the past 15 years, this Conference has been held for 5 times in various countries:

+       ICV-2: Vetiver Grass & Environment (Phetchaburi, Thailand, 2000).
