INVITATION

The International Conference of Essential Oils Indonesia (ICEO) is a biennial scientific event to accommodate academia, researchers, business entrepreneurs, practitioners, and policy makers for a discussion on the current issues of the essential oils, including the latest and novel research findings focusing on essential oils and volatiles. The conference was initiated by Essential Oil Institute, Brawijaya University-Indonesia through the 1st International Conference on Essential Oils Indonesia which was held in Malang, East Java Indonesia in 2017.  The first conference has attracted a significant number of scholars, scientist, experts, practitioners and graduate students to present their research findings.  As one of tropical countries rich in plant biodiversity, Indonesia is a home and natural place for essential oils.   Although the country either traditionally or commercially produces around 40 kinds of essential oils, it claims to export about 12 kinds of essential oils, including patchouli oil, to the international market. Indonesia has produced patchouli oil, mainly in the Province of Aceh, and exported it to the international market since the colonial time.

In line with the policy of the local and central Government to restore the grandeur of the Patchouli Oil from the Province of Aceh, the Essential Oil Research Center of Syiah Kuala University Banda Aceh, Indonesia  in cooperation with the Essential Oil Institute of Brawijaya University, Malang, East Java, Indonesia co-organize the 2nd International Conference of Essential Oils Indonesia 2019 (ICEO 2019) in an attempt to provide a platform for academic and industrial scientists for a discussion of the latest and novel research findings focusing on essential oils and volatiles.  Representatives from industry, Indonesian Essential Oil Council, the Ministries of Agriculture, Trade and Industry of the Republic of Indonesia as well as local governments are also invited to participate in the conference.

The theme of the present conference is “Improvement of Quality Through Standardization of Raw Material, Processes and Essential Oil Products”. It is definitely true that consistent quality of essential oils has become a major concern for the international buyers.  This requirement correlates with physical properties, chemical composition and free from contaminants. In an attempt to meet the export quality, such properties have to be controlled starting from raw materials until final essential oil products.  Consequently, the theme is timely and in line with the ambitions of the local and central Governments of Indonesia to promote essential oil products as exported commodities in an effort to strengthen the local economy.

It is our great pleasure to announce that the 2nd International Conference of Essential Oils Indonesia (ICEO 2019) will be held in the city of Banda Aceh, Indonesia, located in the northern tip of Sumatra island.  In 2004, the city was hit by devastating tsunami caused by a big earthquake.  Such disaster not only claimed hundreds of thousands of lives of the people of Aceh, but also badly destroyed cities, towns and villages closed to coastal areas, including Banda Aceh.  After almost 15 years, the city of Banda Aceh has been back to normal, but you still can witness the remains caused by the tsunami.

We will offer you a variety of scientific topics related to essential oils and volatile, interesting presentations and stimulating discussions. I, therefore, humbly invite you to join the ICEO 2019 to contribute your latest research findings and share your expertise as well as look around the city of Banda Aceh. I am looking forward to meeting you during 29-30 October 2019 in a pleasant, interesting and fruitful conference.

Chair of the 2nd ICEO 2019
