Bali volcano: Mount Agung eruption fears – shock new graph shows spike in seismic activity

What happened to Bali’s volcano that everyone was so worried about?

Due to the continuing threat of eruption of the Mount Agung volcano in Bali and considering the evacuations, planned diversion of flights and current travel warnings, we have decided to postpone the International Hybrid Rice Conference that was scheduled for November 7-9 2017. The current and anticipated future situation in Bali leaves us unable to secure the health and safety of all our participants.

This decision has been made after much deliberation. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences caused. We believe that this is the best way to ensure the wellbeing of all participants.

The event is now rescheduled on February 27, 28 & March 1 2018 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. We are finalizing the venue and once we have this information we shall let you know immediately.

All current registrations/participation will now be moved over and made valid to the new schedule.

In the meantime, should you have any questions, please contact our Secretariat:
