27–29 June 2018 International Conference on Children's Health and the Environment (INCHES)

Seoul, Korea

INCHES is an international network that promotes children’s health and environment. This requires protecting them from harmful environmental exposures.

Saving the Children at Risk,

Shaping the Future Sustainability

From June 27-29, 2018, International Conference on Children's Health and the Environment (INCHES) is organizing its ninth conference at the Hoam Faculty House, Seoul, Korea. We cordially invite you to participate the 9th INCHES and submit abstracts for presentations.


28–30 June 2018 Fourth Annual International Health Congress—Oxford 2018

St Hugh’s College, Oxford

We are delighted to announce the third call for abstracts for the 2018 Oxford Health Congress, which will take place in St Hugh’s College, Oxford (28–30 June 2018).

As in previous years, we welcome excellent research papers from across the spectrum of health and medical research of particular relevance to the understanding of, and need for, health services in all settings. Some of the speakers and details can be found on the website and more will be posted in due course.

The deadline for this call is 13 MARCH 2018. We warmly encourage you to submit your abstracts to: http://www.globalhealthcongress.org/submissions, where full further details can be found. Please do join us for what promises to be another stimulating opportunity to share research ideas and experience with colleagues from around the world.

International Health Congress 2018


3–5 September 2018 Global Land Programme 2018 Asia Conference “Transitioning to Sustainable Development of Land Systems through Teleconnection and Telecouplings”


GLP (Global Land Programme) Taipei Nodal Office together with GLP Japan Nodal Office, are pleased to announce the Global Land Programme 2018 Asia Conference to be held in Taipei, Taiwan on 03 ~ 05 September 2018. The conference will provide a multidisciplinary platform for environmental scientists, engineers, and management professionals to discuss the interdisciplinary land use developments and sustainability.

The teleconnections and telecouplings offer conceptual frameworks to evaluate socio-economic and environmental interactions over distances. In order to transition to environmental sustainability, the frameworks are helpful to measure drivers and impacts of the interactions, and to model the interactions from global to local scales. The goal of this conference is to provide, from global to local, interdisciplinary sustainable solutions, which can be covered by the themes:

Urban rural teleconnections

Integrated regional models

Modelling land system change

Land use drivers and impacts

Telecouplings of Land use systems

Trade-offs for land use and conflict

Land-ocean-atmosphere processes

Land change and ecosystem services/biodiversity

Land management systems

Other relevant topics

We are pleased to invite authors to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations, to be delivered at the GLP 2018 Asia Conference. To fill the knowledge gaps, the conference will also call for papers from fields of study on relevant themes.

For further information or enquiries, please contact: glp.asia2018@gmail.com or visit the website: http://www.glp.taipei.ntu.edu.tw/2018-asia-conference/

We look forward to your participation!


10 September 2018 PODS4H18


The International Workshop on Process-Oriented Data Science for Healthcare 2018 (PODS4H18) aims at providing a high-quality forum for interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners (both data/process analysts and medical audience) to exchange research findings and ideas on healthcare process analysis techniques and practices. PODS4H research includes a wide range of topics from process mining techniques adapted for healthcare processes, to practical issues on implementing PODS methodologies in healthcare centers’ analysis units.

15 November–7 December 2018 The 1st International Electronic Conference on Environmental Health Sciences

Chaired by Prof. Dr. Professor Jon Øyvind Odland

Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 1st International Electronic Conference on Environmental Health Sciences (https://iecehs-1.sciforum.net/).

Today, longitudinal studies are extensively performed, especially in Arctic countries. A considerable number of reports and articles related to epidemiological studies conducted in the arctic regions have appeared in last year Special Issues of IJERPH. For both ethical and scientific reasons, many longitudinal studies have a cohort design, with a long-term follow up of the individuals concerned that, often, are mothers and their children, since the most vulnerable period in human life is before birth and in early childhood. Various epidemiological studies in the circumpolar area have shown associations between contaminants and different health outcomes. The risk assessment of the effects of environmental pollutants is essential for the overall protection of health of the current and next generations. Different methods of risk assessment are available, however it is not clearly established how to translate the contaminant concentrations measured in the blood of the monitored individuals to information useful for risk characterization, thus linking the likelihood that specific adverse health effects will occur to defined concentration ranges of contaminants. In addition, risk assessments are complicated by several factors, such as climate changes and the fluctuations of contaminant exposure levels over long periods. This makes it necessary to continuously monitor environmental pollution and the related potential health effects. The information gathered from risk assessment studies is also important for policy makers to identify preventive measures to be adopted on both a population level and an individual level. The precautionary principle should be the basis of all environmental health science approaches based on newly acquired knowledge, including risk assessments and the definition of strategies to reduce contaminant exposure to humans. This conference creates a unique opportunity to discuss any subject related to environment and health issues. The Chair and the scientific committee heartily welcome you and look forward to this first electronic conference on environmental health sciences.

Kind regards,

Prof. Dr. Jon Øyvind Odland
