Healthy Buildings 2015 Europe is a conference organized by ISIAQ.nl and the Eindhoven University of Technology, under the auspices of ISIAQ International.
As we spend around 90% of our time indoors and exposure therefore is high a good (healthy) indoor environment is important. Though we have come a long way there is still ample room for improvement.
Indoor air science from the start has been a multidisciplinary effort; designing buildings is an integral effort. Both indicate the need to learn from each other, to work with each other and to look at boundaries as opportunities but not to forget where we come from.
With Healthy Buildings 2015 Europe the aim is to provide a platform where we walk along these boundaries and open views and gain knowledge from adjacent scientific fields whereas at the same time we enjoy and acknowledge the new developments and research results within our own broad field. Of course we will not forget the application potential of all the good work being performed.

It is a great pleasure and an honor to extend our warm welcome and invite you to the 12th International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant (ICMGP) to be held in Jeju, Republic of Korea during June 14-19, 2015.
The Minamata Convention on Mercury is finally adopted in October 2013 as a global treaty to protect human health and the environment from the adverse effects of mercury. Through this conference, with theme of 'Today's Action, Saving the Future' our wish is to enhance understanding on every aspect of mercury issues. We strongly believe that the ICMGP will once again provide opportunity to advance communications on actual mercury reduction action - where networking between academics, governments, industries and citizen is essential along with the cooperation among developed and developing countries.

More information will be posted here as it becomes available, including details on the call for abstracts and scholarship applications.
This congress will bring together researchers, practitioners, helpline workers, programme planners, graduate students and persons concerned with suicide bereavement, from a range of disciplines around the world. This is a joint congress with the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) and the Québec Association for Suicide Prevention (AQPS), and is sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO). The official languages are English and French (the official language of the Province of Québec) and there will be simultaneous translation of all plenary and a selection of parallel sessions, with a possibility of sessions in Spanish as well. The congress theme, New Discoveries and Technologies in Suicide Prevention, focuses on presenting cutting-edge research and clinical insights from the beginning of the 21st century. However, as in all IASP Congresses, a full range of topics will be covered, from the latest discoveries in biology and genetics, to culturally sensitive prevention practices and suicidology and the arts. An official call for papers, symposium and workshop proposals will be available in January 2014 on the congress website, www.iasp2015.com.
The aim of the event is to highlight the link between research and practice by gathering together a wide range of papers on health and health services research close to practice and/or policy. These will come from the full range of allied disciplines including primary care, acute medicine, public health, psychiatry, paediatrics, and ageing as well as economics, psychology, statistics, social science and ethics, clinical trial design, health informatics and implementation research.
Healthy Buildings attracts researchers and other professionals from the fields of indoor air quality, built environments, HVAC, health sciences, public health policy, urban planning, mechanical engineering, architecture, building design and management, and more.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) is requesting abstracts addressing the science of healthy aging for presentation at the 2015 Healthy Aging Summit, July 27-28, 2015 in Washington, DC.
Now is the time to examine the critical factors that contribute to healthy aging. Older Americans are a key part of our urban, rural and tribal communities as they have spent a lifetime contributing. Estimates of the U.S. population in 2010, revealed more than 40 million adults age 65 and older. By 2030, this figure is projected to increase to 72 million. Health care expenditures (both out-of-pocket costs and those covered by insurance) for Medicare beneficiaries over time are expected to rise for persons over 65 years of age. Encouraging healthy lifestyles, along with improving the delivery of preventive services, can help older Americans stay healthier longer and improve quality of life in later years.
Using a social determinants of health lens to focus on prevention in healthy aging. What are the upstream factors that contribute to living longer, healthier lives? This Summit seeks to highlight place-based interventions and strategies that optimize health and prevent entry into the health care system. A greater understanding of the social, environmental and emotional factors that influence health in the later years of life can improve quality of life and reduce health care costs.
