This conference aims to bring together people working in all sectors,
academics, industrialists and community workers who have technologies
and experiences to share, suitable for both developing and developed
countries. The conference will primarily focus on the technical
aspects of sustainable biosystems and their integration into society.

Abstracts on these Conference Topics are welcomed
* Integrated Biosystems for Waste Treatment and Reuse
* Water Management in Integrated Biosystems
* Nutrient Management in Integrated Biosystems
* Health and Environmental Issues with Biosystems
* Integrated Biosystems for Urban Resource Management
* Integrated Biosystems for Improving Degraded & Saline-Affected Soils
* Community Participation and Governance
* Education and Training
* Case Studies and Applied Technologies
* and any other topics that may fall under the theme of technologies
and strategic management of sustainable biosystems.

Background

Biosystems are a sustainable approach for the management of natural
resources. In the past the management of water, food, energy and
shelter throughout the world has been largely by biosystems. This is
evident even today throughout the developing world and in rural
regions. Increased urbanisation and dependence on mechanical
technologies coupled with lifestyle changes and market driven economic
centralism is consuming resources in un-sustainable ways. This
urban-lifestyle and commercial activity is often unconnected with
surrounding ecosystems and biosystems. In questioning the
sustainability of lifestyle and commercial activities old approaches
have been re-assessed and refined.

Development of decentralised technologies that mimic biosystems have
led to real commercial gains without sacrificing a sustainable
approach. Decentralised approaches and the move toward integration of
high-tech solutions and biosystems guarantee innovation. The use of
biosystems and models derived from them can have real benefit to the
environment and economy at the same time.
