  1. Dear Kathleen,

    After the Asia OA Summit in UiTM INTEKMA Shah Alam, I began to realize the significance of attending & participating in the upcoming COAR Annual Meeting 2017@Venice, Italy.

    Appreciate it so much if I can also participate in this very timely meeting to represent my institution, UNIVERSITI MALAYSIA SARAWAK.

    Best Wishes.
