    Little Beans, Big Opportunities: Realizing the Potential of Pulses to Meet Today's Global Health Challenges

    Speakers: Seth Adu-Afarwuah (University of Ghana), Vincent Amanor-Boadu (Kansas State University), Richard Black (PepsiCo), Laurette Dubé (McGill University), Allan Hruska (United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization), PK Joshi (International Food Policy Research Institute), Mark J Manary (Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis), Danielle Nierenberg (Food Tank), Sonny Ramaswamy (USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture), John L. Sievenpiper (University of Toronto), Joanne Slavin (University of Minnesota)

    This inaugural conference will look at the role of pulses in healthy and sustainable diets, examine how pulses can make critical contributions to public health, and explore opportunities for enhancing these benefits broadly through food system innovations.

    July 18 - 19, 2012

    Seventh Annual New Energy Symposium

    The 2012 New Energy Symposium will convene multi-sector stakeholders to showcase the latest technology in clean energy and discuss hot topics in the field.

    Wednesday, May 30, 2012 | 8:30 AM - 6:30 PM

    Implications of A Data-Driven Built Environment

    Organizers: Chris Garvin (Terrapin Bright Green), Michel Wahome (The New York Academy of Sciences)

    Our intent is to look at the potential data pool for the entire real estate industry and draw out the value between data sets and determine what data we should be collecting in order achieve sustainability and market transformation goals.

    Friday, April 27, 2012 | 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

    5th Annual Advances in Biomolecular Engineering Symposium

    Organizers: Jin Ryoun Kim (NYU-Poly), Ronald Koder (The City College of New York), Jin Montclare (NYU-Poly), Raymond Tu (The City College of New York), Vikas Nanda (Rutgers University)

    Biomolecular Engineering aims to design and engineer biomolecules for therapeutics, biocatalysts, protein-based biosensors, and more. This symposium will emphasize the design of oligosaccharides and proteins for materials and energy applications.

  • Publications 


    The Implications of a Data Driven–Built Environment

    Edited by Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences editorial staff

    This Annals issue explores how large data sets can be harnessed to improve energy management in the built environment.

    Volume 1295


    The Implications of a Data-driven Built Environment

    Keynote Speaker: Didier Stevens (Toyota Motor Europe)

    Data about energy consumption in buildings can revolutionize energy use and, if analyzed effectively, has the potential to transform buildings' market value. This eBriefing examines 'big data' in the real estate industry and focuses on new systems for energy management.


    Nature and the City: What Good Is Urban Conservation?

    Moderator: Bill Ulfelder (The Nature Conservancy)
    Speakers: Marielle Anzelone (NYC Wildflower Week), Jon Christensen (Stanford University), Susannah Drake (dlandstudio pllc), Rob McDonald (The Nature Conservancy), and Phil Stevens (Urban Creeks Council)

    Across the United States, people are newly inspired to recapture nature in cities, but can these efforts rebuild biodiversity? In this eBriefing, leading scientists, authors, and urban conservationists discuss the science behind and the promise of today's urban conservation efforts.


    Finding the Needle in the Data Haystack: The Implications of a Data-driven Built Environment

    Speakers: Chris Garvin (Terrapin Bright Green), Cliff Majersik (Institute for Market Transformation), and Chris Pyke (U.S. Green Building Council)

    There is an increasing focus on policy, standards, and interoperability of building data. Without the proper tools, the virtual tsunami of building data can overwhelm potential users. This eBriefing focuses on refining the data stream to drive green building innovation.
