The 4th International Conference on Biosciences (ICoBio) and
The 17th National Congress of Indonesian Biological Society (PBI) 2021

Theme: Bioscience Innovations for Sustainable Development Goals

Date: 11-12 August 2021

Media : Zoom Meeting

Committee: Department of Biology, IPB University (email:,  Indonesian Biological Society (PBI), and UniversitI Putra Malaysia (UPM) 

It is undeniable that biosciences play a pivotal role in every aspect of life. Biosciences have been translated into various inter and trans-disciplinary fields, leading to practical solutions to sustainable development goals (SDGs).

Indeed, today we are facing severe issues including poverty, food and feed security, healthcare issue, energy scarcity, global warming, biodiversity loss, and others. Integration of biological field with engineering, information technology, economy, and social sciences may serve as potential strategies to combat such challenging issues.

As part of the global scientific communities, Department of Biology, IPB University facilitates researcher, practitioners, students, academicians related to the field of biosciences worldwide to gather and share information, ideas, knowledge, and research results on the 4th International Conference on Biosciences (ICoBio), held on 11th-12th August 2021.This year, ICoBio will be held as an online seminar with the main theme of "Bioscience Innovations for Sustainable Development Goals", which will serve a fruitful atmosphere of scientific meeting that represents our best efforts in facing today's challenging issues.

5. Smart and Sustainable Agro-maritime

Type of Presentation : Oral Presentation
A. Biodiversity, Conservation Biology, and Climate Change

Biodiversity and conservation biology become the outcome of scientific studies searching for social and economic benefits and its correlation with climate change issues. This topic includes (1) Genetic biodiversity (study at gene level); (2) Species biodiversity (the study of varieties of species in nature); (3) Ecosystem biodiversity (species diversity with their habitats); and 4). Climate change (how climate change impacted nature sustainability, biodiversity loss, and conservation biology). Biodiversity, conservation biology, and climate change issues can also be the basis to analyse and answer the sustainable development goals criteria: (1) in basic & social sciences (taken from nature's perspective and understanding); (2) as the backbone of applied sciences (agriculture, aquaculture, animal husbandry, forestry. etc.).; (3) basic development knowledge to better land-use pattern; (4) bio-resources utilisation; (5) societal and cultural context (based on local/global biodiversity); (5) human development; (6) basis of general law (biodiversity & biology as the basis of dynamic stabilisation law in complex systems).


B. ​Bioprospecting, Health Issues, and Industrial Biology    

Bioprospecting, health issues, and industrial biology focus on the exploration of natural sources. It includes small molecules, macromolecules, and genetic materials. These natural sources can be developed into commercially valuable products in agriculture, bioremediation, health issues, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries. Industrial biology is mainly based on a process that uses a complete living cell or their components (bacteria, enzymes, chloroplast) to obtain desired products for a sustainable life.

C. Omics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology

Omics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology focus on the main study on how biological problems are interpreted and analysed and the application of solutions to problems using bioinformatics.  The biological problems in this topic Including (1) genetics; (2) epigenetics; (3) genomics; (4) proteomics; (5) metagenomics; (6) transcriptomics; (7) phylogenetics; (8) metabolomics; (9) systems biology; (10) structural analysis; (11) molecular modelling; (12) pathway analysis; (13) computational bioengineering; (14) computational biomechanics; (15) computational bioimaging; (16) mathematical biology; and (17) theoretical biology.


D. Techno-Biology and Bioengineering

Techno-biology and bio-engineering focus on the application of technology to biosciences, such as in: biomedical/biosystem/biochemical (neurostimulator, derived stem cells, testing and measuring of nanoscale features, regenerative medicine, diagnostic tests, antimicrobial nanoparticle, tissue integrity, health monitors, nano solar cells, protein characterisation, cell phenotype; nanoparticle medicine, drug delivery); electrical/bio-synthetics (3-D Imaging, robotic, ultrasound, nanoprobes, injectable bio, material biocompatibility, embedded transceivers, thermal design of buildings); mechanical/biosensor (haptics-sensing/manipulating objects through touch, exoskeleton using an external anatomical device that supports/protects a body, body motion in harvesting energy for microbial fuel cells, artificial disc/intelligence, pollution control to global warming).

E. Smart and Sustainable Agro-Maritime

Smart and sustainable agro-maritime focus on the topic includes: (1) satisfying human food and fibre need; (2) enhance environmental quality and the natural resources in land and water; (3) natural biological cycles and controls; (4) sustain the economic viability of farm operation; and (5) enhance the quality of life for farmers/fisher and society to conclude the criteria of sustainable development goals. This topic also including agro-maritime technology using the agricultural drone, satellite photography and sensors, IoT-based sensor networks, phase tracking, weather forecasts, automated irrigation, light and heat control, intelligent software analysis for pest and disease prediction, as well as soil management and other involved analytical tasks, and other agro-maritime biotechnologies.

The National Congress of the Indonesian Biological Society is the highest power holder of the Indonesian Biological Society which is an indicator of the existence of a professional organization and is very important that it can be held every four years.  The National Congress of the Indonesian Biological Society functions as the main vehicle for professional organizations as stated in the Articles and By-laws, thus the Report of the Central Executive of the Indonesian Biological Society for the 2017-2021 period becomes a record documenting the realization of the agenda and planned activities during the management period of the Indonesian Biological Society which mandated by members at the previous National Congress of the Indonesian Biological Society.

The report of the Central Executive of the Indonesian Biological Society can serve as an evaluation material in assessing policies and performance of the Management during the 2017-2021 period so that it can be used as material for consideration in making decisions and establishing various policies and formulating organizational programs by the management of the Indonesian Biological Society in the coming period.
