>                       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
>environment.
>
>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
>conference will gather biologists, scientists, engineers, sociologists,
>economists and project coordinators and members of the electronic Network
>on Integrated Bio-systems.
>
>Scope
>
>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.
>
>Instructions for Submission of Abstracts:
>
>An abstract should not be longer than 55 lines (65 characters per line) and
>to include (a) title, author(s) name(s), postal address, and other
>electronic addresses. Please send your abstract(s) to:
>ias-wg09 at ias.unu.edu
>Deadline: 1st submission - 31 Dec'97 - for presentation between
>April-June'98
>Deadline: 2nd submission - 30 June'98 - for presentation between
>Oct-Dec'98.

>All abstracts will be reviewed by a committee and upon their approval,
>authors will be requested to submit the full paper. Details will be
>provided separately to authors. Abstracts and full papers will be available
>on a web site and for discussion via an electronic mailing list. Access to
>electronic mail or Internet is a pre-requisite.
