The seventh International Conference on Sustainable Water Resources Management will present the more recent technological and scientific developments associated with the management of surface and sub-surface water resources.
The conference provides a platform for professionals involved in water resources management to exchange knowledge and gain an insight into the state of the art in current technology, techniques and solutions in sustainable water management as they have been developed and applied in different countries. Participants include a wide variety of stakeholders from research, academia and industrial sectors as well as government organisations.
Water is essential for sustaining life on our planet and its uneven distribution is a source of permanent conflict. The growth of human population combined with irregularity in precipitation and water availability may restrict even further the access to water in certain regions of the world. This problem is made more severe by anthropogenic activities that affect its quality.
Air Pollution 2013 is the 21st Annual Meeting in the successful series of international conferences organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology dealing with Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution.
IFPE is an international organization devoted to the pro-motion of epidemiological and health services research on mental disorders. Founded in 1985, it is an independent, non-profit association relying entirely on annual subscription fees. The 14th International Congress of IFPE provides an excellent forum for the exchange of ideas. This is an opportunity for experts engaged with these issues to report and discuss their findings and to offer new perspectives on interesting issues in the field. Younger researchers earlier in their careers are also especially encouraged to participate.
Apart from the main theme of the congress, research reports from all other aspects of psychiatric epidemiology, including service planning and service evaluation, pharmaco-epidemiology and clinical epidemiology are very welcome. The conference in Leipzig will offer opportunities for researchers from around the globe. The congress will consist of plenary sessions, symposia, free paper presentations, poster sessions and workshops on research methods.
Suicide has a terrible toll on most, if not all, societies around the world. Although we have made significant progress over the last decades in our understanding of risk factors for suicide, as well as in intervention and prevention strategies, much has yet to be learned and remains to be done.
The 2013 IASR World Congress is the first of its kind. It is the first meeting of the International Academy for Suicide Research IASR, organized by the Quebec Suicide Research Network (RQRS), in partnership with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), and in collaboration with the Association québécoise de prévention du suicide (AQPS), the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) and the Fédération Trauma Suicide Liaison Urgence (TSLU). This meeting will provide an inspiring forum for high level discussions on suicide research, suicide prevention and intervention.
The theme of the congress is Suicide: From research to practice. We are planning a number of timely and stimulating plenary sessions to discuss contemporary issues on suicide research, avenues for suicide prevention and innovative ways to intervene on suicidal behavior. Other sessions will offer unique opportunities for engaged dialogue between researchers and clinicians, stakeholders and decision-makers, promoting both translation of research findings to practice, as well as informing research direction by clinical and prevention needs.
We are pleased to invite you to join us in Sydney in July 2013 for the 9th World Congress of the International Health Economics Association.
Our theme is Celebrating Health Economics. 2013 will mark fifty years since the publication of Kenneth Arrow’s ‘Uncertainty and the welfare economics of medical care’ in The American Economic Review. Its significance is such that many regard it as the seminal work in health economics, and date the founding of our discipline from then.
iHEA Congresses are well established as the forum to hear new work in health economics and meet colleagues from around the globe and for 2013 we promise you an interesting and high quality program. So half a century on from Arrow’s seminal contribution is an opportune time to look back and celebrate what has been achieved in health economics, and of course Sydney is renowned for its celebrations!
The third International Conference on Disaster Management is being reconvened following the success of the first two meetings, held at the Wessex Institute of Technology in the New Forest, UK, in 2009 and at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, USA, in 2011.
The world is facing an increasing number of natural disasters affecting millions of people, destroying property and resulting in loss of human life. These include major floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and many others.
Today we are facing unparalleled threats from human-made disasters that can be attributed to the failure of industrial and energy installations as well as deliberate sabotage from terrorists and vandalism during virulent political upheavals.
Added to this is the ever present threat from natural causes ranging from biological pandemics to earthquakes and tsunamis. All these events pose unprecedented risks to human health on a world scale which requires a massive effort by the international community. Because of this, the conference also focuses on current global health risks, and how best to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters in order to reduce human health impacts.

The medinfo2013 Scientific Programme Committee (SPC) invites you to submit contributions in a form of:
The last decade has seen the idea of complexity gain force in social science and epidemiological research. As social problems of all kinds prove less amenable to change than is sometimes suggested by the reductionist demands of orthodox positivist approaches, theory and method have turned to ways of articulating the elusive, uncertain and complex.
For some, such as the science and technology studies scholars Annemarie Mol and John Law (2002), complexity means multiplicity rather than unity, realities rather than reality, distinct but overlapping worlds, logics and orders. Implicated, too, are questions about the relation between order and chaos, and the validity of binaries of any kind, including that of simplicity and complexity itself.
This conference offers a forum in which the issues and dilemmas of complexity in alcohol and other drug research can be explored. It welcomes research based on quantitative and qualitative methods, and encourages innovative use of methods, concepts and theoretical approaches. Following the conference, Contemporary Drug Problems, an interdisciplinary quarterly and one of the driving forces behind the conference, will publish a special issue featuring selected papers from the conference.

The World Diabetes Congress is one of the world’s largest health-related congresses and the only truly global meeting in diabetes, bringing together over 15,000 delegates, more than 400 high-level speakers, over 80 international exhibitors and representatives from over 200 diabetes member associations from more than 160 countries.
Attendees of IDF Congresses come from very diverse backgrounds: research scientists, physicians and other health care professionals (nurses, general practitioners, dieticians, diabetes educators...), non-profit organizations and health policy makers.
The World Diabetes Congress 2013 in Melbourne, Australia offers opportunities to both commercial and non-commercial organizations to showcase their products and services to the largest global gathering of diabetes healthcare professionals in the world. With over 4,000 square metres of prime exhibition space, organisations can effectively reach the international diabetes community in the global response to Diabetes.
After almost two decades, the World Diabetes Congress is returning to the Western Pacific, the region that has the largest percentage of undiagnosed cases and the highest number of deaths attributable to diabetes, with 1.7 million deaths among adults or over 15% of all deaths in 2011. In Australia, it is estimated that 8 per cent of the population is living with diabetes. This is forecast to increase to 14% over the next twenty years. A big problem is manifesting itself in Australia’s Indigenous population where 30% of people are thought to have diabetes. This is why, twenty years after the 1994 congress in Kobe Japan, the World Diabetes Congress is returning to the region, and will be held in Melbourne, Australia from 2 to 6 December 2013.
Melbourne’s location makes the Congress accessible to delegates from China and India, two countries where large portions of the population have diabetes. Melbourne’s infrastructure makes it possible for delegates to find accommodation and travel around at reasonable prices.
