Abstract : We all are aware of the current discussions in IMO and the European Commission on the regulations for ballast water and wastewater treatment on the high seas as well as in special areas. We are also aware of the more restrictive regulations that have been established by many coastal regions and even local authorities. This impacts on the shipping industry in general but particularly on the Cruise Industry that visits environmentally sensitive sea areas quite frequently. We have selected the papers for our conference with the intention to contribute knowledge and examples to these discussions and to provide an expert forum for discussion of these matters involving the regulatory authorities as well as the concerned industry. Therefore the objectives of this conference are: 1. Provision of a forum for representatives from industry, ship owners, academia, governments, maritime and harbour authorities and shipyards for discussion and exchange of information on policies, trends and development of regulations for the treatment of ballast water, waste water and sewage on ships and in ports. 2. Presentation and discussion of technologies and equipment for the treatment of black, grey and oily water as well as ballast water and sewage generated on board of ships. 3. Presentation and discussion of advanced waste water treatment technologies, future research and adaptation of current and future technologies for ship systems 4. Discussion of management aspects related to waste water and ballast water treatment. 5. Recommendations for latest technology applications on ships and in ports. 6. Recommendations to industries and governments for policies and international collaboration.
