Advances in Geospatial Technologies for Health: Abstracts Due 4/30

Another friendly reminder from our colleagues from the ISPRS Working Group 2 (Health) about the abstract submission deadline for the Advances in Geospatial Technologies for Health symposium:

Advances in Geospatial Technologies for Health
11-14 September 2011 Santa Fe, NM USA

ISPRS Working Group 2 (Health) is proud to announce its symposium on Advances in Geospatial Technologies for Health. This 2-day event focuses on applications of geospatial technologies for human health and well-being to integrate environment with health sciences. The venue is the La Fonda Hotel located at the historic plaza in Santa Fe, NM USA.

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.
