Preliminary Announcement (June 1999)

Internet Conference on Material Flow Analysis of Integrated Bio-Systems
( )

The Conference will be an online conference in 2000 and to be organised by
the Institute of Advanced Studies of the United Nations University (Tokyo)
and the Integrated Bio-Systems Network
(, in cooperation with other
organizations. It aims to bring together researchers, practitioners,
developers and policy makers involved in the application of
integrated bio-systems for resource utilisation, and waste management and
treatment in industry, agriculture, fisheries, and environmental and urban
planning. The Conference is a follow-up of the 1998 Internet Conference on
Integrated Bio-Systems ( and will
encourage discussions on material/substance flow/balance of a wide variety
of integrated bio-systems.

Material flows involve the quantification of substances/wastes/nutrients
and energy that are being exchanged between sub-systems of nature and
society. Information that is generated from such studies can be very useful
for a number of purposes;  e.g. to optimize or make bio-systems more robust
to changes; for improvement and development of waste management systems by
cities; minimisation of raw material utilisation in industry,
decision-making and planning of complex systems, life cycle and
environmental impact assessments, problem solving in tracing sources of
environmental problems, discover potential future problems, and they also
form a basis for regulation in material handling, prediction of
effectiveness of pollution abatement measures, identification of technical
development and research needs, etc. .

The scope of the conference is currently being defined by a planning group.
If you wish to join this planning group, please send your self-introduction
with information on your work and publications (if available) to

Future announcements, scientific programme and funds for authors and
participant groups will be made via the mailing list ET-W11.
