The value of knowledge lies in its power to generate social benefit. Our success in this endeavour is dependent on industry's ability to apply that knowledge to fulfil the community's needs. Academia, in turn, has the responsibility to generate new knowledge to address the current deficiency. Together, academia and industry promote growth and advancement … and hence strengthen our profession.
The Chemeca 2007 Committee invite papers and presentations on the following broad topic areas:

Biotechnology and Nantechnology
Energy and the Environment
Education and Engineering Resource Development
Particle Technology
Food Engineering
Industrial Best Practice and Innovation

In the Industrial Best Practice and Innovation topic area, we are particularly keen to receive contributions from practising engineers in the following industries:

Fuels (Clean coal, Synthetic Liquid Fuels, Biofuels)
Oil & Gas Productions and Processing
Manufacturing Best Practice Systems
Engineering Contracting & Design
Equipment Suppliers
Wood Chemicals, Pulp & Paper
Power Generation

Chemeca 2007 will not only be a showcase for new knowledge but also a forum to discuss current issues. It is an excellent opportunity to share innovation. The industry and academia leaders will present their visions for the future of our profession, especially in the Australasian context. Chemeca 2007 also provides the opportunity for the technology and service providers to promote their products and services to a learned audience.
