Mycologia leads the way to Healthy Buildings 2012

Having previously been held in Europe, Asia and the United States, the 10th Annual Healthy Buildings International conference is coming to Brisbane this year and Mycologia is excited to be involved at ground level.

Mycologia is a Gold Plus sponsor of the event, which attracts thousands of
delegates from all over the world.

This is the first time the Healthy Buildings Conference has been held in the Southern Hemisphere and it's expected to draw hundreds of representatives
from the Asia Pacific region.

Mycologia is also playing an integral part in scientific proceedings, Mycologia Director Dr Heike Neumeister-Kemp said.

The Healthy Buildings International Conference in 2012 (HB2012) is the official conference of the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ).

"Mycologia delegates will be taking part in workshop panel discussions, serving on the scientific committee and presenting 11 papers," Dr Neumeister-Kemp said.

There will be an exhibition and a Mycologia booth featuring information about all the latest equipment, systems and educational resources.

"We will be launching our book, The Mould Workers Handbook, from the Mycologia stand as well as raising awareness of the work Mycologia does and
the services we provide,” she said.

Mycologia is also pleased to be hosting internationally renowned research Professor Aino Nevaleinen, from the National Public Health Institute in Finland.

"Professor Nevaleinen is joining us to present two half-day workshops, one in Perth just before the conference and another in Brisbane just after," Dr
Neumeister-Kemp said.

The Healthy Buildings Conference is the official conference of the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ).

The conference allows scientists, researchers and other professionals to collaborate and share their findings in their respective fields including indoor air quality, built environments, heating, ventilation and air condition engineering, health sciences, public health policy, urban planning, mechanical engineering, architecture, building design and management.
