From 14th-15th November 2017, BINUS UNIVERSITY will host the International Conference on Eco Engineering Development 2017 (ICEED) which will be held at the Melia Purosani Hotel in Yogyakarta. The goal of the conference is to provide a platform for the exchange of knowledge between researchers, scholars, and industry leaders in the field of ecological engineering. BINUS UNIVERSITY invites participants — scientists, researchers, NGOs and government organisations among others — to submit research papers on this subject in which the selected papers will be uploaded onto the IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science; an online portal that provides open access to scientific publications. The deadline for the paper submissions is 31st August 2017.
The ICEED conference aims to highlight the continued integration of ecology and engineering that is concerned with the design, monitoring, constructing, and restoring of ecosystems. The conference thus serves as a bridge between ecologists and engineers to discuss topics ranging from ‘Sustainable Construction Materials’, to Eco Infrastructure Applications, and ‘Innovative Food Packaging’ among many others. As such, it is hoped that through the conference, participants can assist in the restoration of ecosystems that have been disturbed by human activities and the development of new sustainable ecosystems that have both human and ecological value. Furthermore, ICEED is set to feature guest speakers Professor Wong Nyuk Hien from the National University of Singapore, Professor Chul-Ho Kang from Kwangoon University in South Korea, and Nur Yuwono from Gadjah Mada University in Indonesia; the guest speakers will share their invaluable knowledge on the development of sustainable ecological solutions for the region.
BINUS UNIVERSITY’s upcoming ICEED conference demonstrates the university’s capacity to encourage discourse regarding Indonesia’s environmental issues. Problems such as deforestation, water pollution, air pollution, and haze from forest fires still plague the country’s investment climate and the ICEED conference will provide an important stepping stone for participants to bring forward solutions to biological conservation through integrated engineering systems in Indonesia and abroad.
