Healthy Buildings 2012
The Conference Committee’s vision is to organise a first class conference with an impact that lasts well beyond the duration of the conference. With the conference being held for the first time in the Southern Hemisphere there are plenty of exciting opportunities for delegates to explore the host destination, Brisbane, as well as the surrounding regions, and States of Australia.

Healthy Buildings 2012 will be held in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
The website for the 2012 Healthy Building conference is now live - http://hb2012.org/
Since its inception in 1988, the Healthy Buildings conferences have been held in various locations throughout Europe, North America and Asia, however, to date, no conferences have been held in the Southern Hemisphere. Given that Australia has been experiencing a steady increase in interest in indoor air quality and healthy indoor environments over the last few decades, we believe that it is timely to hold the next Healthy Buildings conference in Australia. The city of Brisbane, in Queensland, is a great place for holding meetings/conferences, with its ample accommodation options, good climate and numerous opportunities for recreational activities nearby. The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is located in the heart of Brisbane and is home to one of the largest academic programs focused on air quality, and in particular indoor air quality, in Australia, namely the ‘International Laboratory for Air Quality and Health’ (ILAQH).
Professor Lidia Morawska of the Queensland University of Technology is the President.
