ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information Events
25–29 August 2013 2nd Symposium on Advances in Geospatial Technologies for Health
The International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) Working Group on Health (WG VIII/2) is organizing its 2nd Symposium on Advances in Geospatial Technologies for Health in collaboration with the MEDGEO-2013 to bring together a wider group of cross-disciplinary participants.
This symposium will discuss the advances and trends of Earth-observing and geospatial technologies, with special emphasis on examining how the natural environment contributes to air-borne, water-borne, soil-borne, infectious/zoonotic, and geological materials and process-induced diseases and hazards.
The mission of this symposium is to bridge the geospatial science, Earth science and health science communities exploring synergies of mutual expertise to improve our overall health and well-being.
This symposium includes oral and poster presentations, and workshops. Topics of interest are: Public Health Surveillance; Earth Observing Data for Health Applications; Data, Modeling and Information Systems; Air Pollution Estimation for Health Impact; Infectious Diseases; Coastal Health and Hazards; and Global Climate Variability Impact on Health. You are invited to propose a topic that relates to application of geospatial technologies in health science research and practice.
