Public Health Surveillance

Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina

The 2012 ISDS Conference planning is in full force. The Scientific Program Committee is working hard to incorporate all of the great ideas mentioned on 2011 Conference Evaluations and, informally, in conversations with our stakeholders! For example, by popular demand, the 2012 Conference will include more networking and collaboration opportunities than ever before.

Join your colleagues from a broad range of disciplines in highlighting the importance of working together across agencies, sectors, and disciplines in an effort to improve surveillance methods and population health outcomes! With Keynote Addresses from James H. Fowler, University of California, San Diego and Bill Davenhall, ESRI, Inc., this year's ISDS Conference is already shaping up to be the most exciting in ISDS history. 

Be a part of this invigorating agenda! Abstracts are being accepted for individual, oral, poster, panel, and roundtable presentations, as well as system showcase demonstrations. Abstracts that address the conference theme, "Expanding Collaborations to Chart a New Course in Public Health Surveillance", and that relate to the following tracks are strongly encouraged:
  • Analytic Methods
  • Informatics
  • Policy
  • Public/Population health surveillance

Deadline for abstract submission is September 6, 2012. Details can be found here
