This two day even focuses on applications of geospatial technologies for human health and well being to integrate environment with health sciences. Abstract submission for presentation is open until April 30, 2011.
The Mission of ISPRS Commission VIII, Working Group 2 (Health) focuses on applications of remote sensing and other Earth observing technologies to understand how the natural environment contributes to environmental (asthma, cholera, meningitis, malaria, yellow fever) and infectious/zoonotic (AIDS, TB, influenza, gastroenteritis, plague) diseases. One of the areas of interest is identifying Earth observing data that are used to improve models and to enhance surveillance systems, decision support tools, and early warning systems. The working group aims to reach out to colleagues not only in the scientific community, but also in the health and well-being communities of practice to begin a dialog and share information between these two communities. This mission is supported by the working group's terms of reference and a variety of ISPRS and other related venues and opportunities.
The organizers cordially invite you to submit an abstract for oral or poster presentations in the following topic areas:
- New Geospatial Technologies for Health
- Advances in Environmental Monitoring
- Health Sciences Applications
- Data Integration and Modeling
- Real-time and Early Warning Systems
- Emerging and Re-emerging Diseases
- International Monitoring Programs
- On and Just Beyond the Horizon
