The biologic equilibrium on its vast immensity is a challenge for both knowledge gathering and its understanding. Preserving the existing species under rapid economy, one the one side, and using the diversity of environmental species for industrial purposes is a very week balance. There is a risk of for ever damaging the existence of thousands of species, or miss the opportunity of using them for the benefit of humanity. Therefore, measuring and interpreting the impact of human actions on the diversity on marine and oceanic life, on Arctic and Antarctic bio-climate, or on forest ecosystems represent one way to prevent ecological disasters and predict possible environmental changes.
The inaugural event, BIODIV 2010, The First International Conference on Biodiversity and Invasion Control, deals with such ecosystem diversity, and the use of their existence for humanity in terms of industrial products, drug production, but also in terms of studying and modeling the ecological degradation, such loss of Poles’ ice, food-chain dependency survival, wildlife endurance, or ozone holes. It also bring to the stage different disruption side-effect of the landscape changes, detection and warning systems, invasion of alien species, and the need for public awareness and education.
BIODIV 2010 deals with technical papers presenting research and practical results, industrial small- and large-scale systems, challenging applications, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific topics on biodiversity, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the topics, short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.
All tracks are open to both research and industry contributions
Marine & oceanic bio-technologies
Arctic and Antarctic bio-pulse

Work in Progress
Work-in-progress contributions are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the contribution type as work in progress. Authors should submit a four-page (maximum) text manuscript in IEEE double-column format including the authors' names, affiliations, email contacts. Contributors must follow the conference deadlines, describing early research and novel skeleton ideas in the areas of the conference topics. The work will be published in the conference proceedings.
For more details, see the Work in Progress explanation page
Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations
The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will not be published in the conference’s CD Proceedings. Presentations' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your presentations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals should be for three hour tutorials. Proposals must contain the title, the summary of the content, and the biography of the presenter(s). The tutorials' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your proposals to email@example.com
The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies. The panel's slide deck will be posted on the IARIA's site.
