The 4th Symposium organized by the IWWG Asian Regional Branch (IWWG-ARB) will be held in Bangkok, Thailand, from 20 to 22 February, 2019.

The Regional Branch of IWWG is a strategy of IWWG to better organize the IWWG activities, favour contacts and participation, better consider local needs in a significantly large area (Asia, Africa, South and North America, etc.). This ARB branch is the special one in the Asian region to initiate the IWWG strategy.
Based on the IWWG Regional Branch Establishment Procedure, a Founding committee was formed by Toshihiko Matsuto (Hokkaido University, Japan), Pin-Jing He (Tongji University, China), and Jae Young Kim (Seoul National University, Republic of Korea) who are the members of Managing Board and/or Scientific Advisory Board of IWWG. Starting from this three countries, ARB activities will extend to other Asian countries.
The kickoff activity of ARB is the organization of ARB symposium, which was decided to be held in Japan, China and Korea. Between 2013 and 2017 IWWG-ARB Symposiums were successfully conducted in Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan (March 2013), Tongji University, Shanghai, China (April 2015) and Seoul National University, Seoul, Republic of Korea (2017).

In 2019, Thailand is honored to host the 4th IWWG-ARB which will be held on 20th – 22nd February 2019 at the Sukosol Bangkok, Bangkok. This symposium is organized jointly by Kasetsart University and King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi. We are pleased to cordially invite you to join us at the 4th IWWG-ARB and participate in enhancing our global network of researchers working on waste management and related area. We are confident that this symposium will be rewarding for all participants and will, once again, provide an opportunity to promote communication among academics, researchers, and industrialists who are interested in working on waste management. We wish the 4th IWWG-ARB to be an opportunity not only for sharing ideas and experiences but also for establishing and extending friendships among researchers with common interests from, not only Asia, but also all over the world.
We look forward to welcoming you all to Bangkok and the 4th IWWG-ARB!
