                       CALL FOR ABSTRACTS AND PAPERS

Internet Conference on Integrated Bio-Systems (April-Dec 1998)

This Internet Conference is a virtual conference where full papers will be
available on the web and their discussions will be conducted via electronic
mailing lists.

The conference is jointly organized by the Institute of Advanced Studies
(UNU/IAS) of the United Nations University (Tokyo) and the UNESCO Microbial
Resources Center (MIRCEN-Stockholm) under the UNU/IAS prgramme on
"eco-restructuring for sustainable development" which advocates the zero
emissions concept of wastes and by-products utilization for
income-generating activities and those that contribute to a cleaner

The purpose of the conference is to permit Internet access to a
comprehensive documentation of past and current work on integrated
bio-systems, to enable authors to share knowledge and know-how and to
encourage participants to interact with the authors. The Internet confer
ence will gather biologists, scientists, engineers, sociologists,
economists and project coordinators and members of the electronic Network
on Integrated Bio-systems.


The conference will deal with a variety of topics on the science,
technology and practice of integrated bio-systems in agriculture,
aquaculture and industry for energy and primary food production, waste
treatment & utilization, food processing. Papers are invited on integrated
bio-systems for localized site applications, such as fish-bivalve
polyculture systems in aquaculture; crop-mushroom-compost systems in
agriculture; integrated agriculture-aquaculture systems (e.g. rice-fish
systems); systems for wastewater treatment and utilization, water quality
management (e.g. sewage wastewater-fish-hydroponics-wetland systems) and
solid waste treatment and utilisation (e.g. municipal solid
waste-vermiculture-compost-duck systems, and livestock
manure-biogas-crop/horticulture systems). Scientific papers related to the
above topics on their microbial ecosystems, their materials balance and
nutrients flows, transfer of toxics in the food chains, economic analysis
and assessment of whole systems, ecological bioremediation, etc. are also
welcomed. Other systems may have a wider landscape applications, including
coastal zone aquaculture and resource management, agro-forestry,
lowland-upland, urban-agriculture, lakes, villages, communities, industrial
and recreation parks, cities) and those at a regional level that cover
socio-economic and political issues.
