This will make the bibliography appear directly following the last section. To put the bibliography on the following page put a \newpage just before the bibliography.

Howdy,

It's a natbib thing that I've run across and don't really understand. First, the natbib documentation says you should use the [sectionbib] option when used with the chapterbib package (although that's not the problem). Second, I've used the [numbers] option with natbib. I'm sure it changes the formatting somehow but I'm not familiar enough with the natbib package and the details of bibliographies. So, I'd use

\usepackage[sectionbib,numbers]{natbib}

Good Luck,
