Conference Information System


6-11 September 2006, Krasnoyarsk, Russia



Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences (SB RAS), the Scientific Council on Plant Physiology and Photosynthesis of Russian Academy of Sciences and the Plants Physiologists’ Society of Russia are organizing a conference in September 2006, titled “CLOSED LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT FOR HUMAN SURVIVAL UNDER EXTREME CONDITIONS”.
The Conference will be held in the city of Krasnoyarsk, Russia. It is hosted by Institute of Biophysics of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences (IBP SB RAS) - one of the leading institutions in the researches on closed life support systems (CLSS) where the BIOS-3 facility was designed and constructed. Out of all man-made regenerative life support systems so far devised it is the "BIOS-3" only that maintained the life of a crew of 2-3 for 4-6 months by almost 100% closure of the cycle in terms of water and gas and more than 50% in terms of food.

Conference Topics:

1) Current state of researches in the field of biological and physical-chemical life support systems for terrestrial and space applications.
2) Experimental and theoretical modeling of closed life support system.
3) New trends of mass balance as applied to closed life support system.
4) Quality control: chemical and microbiological contaminants detection and control within closed life support systems.
5) Closure problems of LSS of different purpose.
6) Design and technological philosophy of creation of CLSS of a new generation.
7) Synergies of life support research with understanding of the Earth ecosystem.
