GEOMED 2009 is the 6th international, interdisciplinary conference on geomedical systems.
This meeting is a jointly sponsored event with SAMSI and so the meeting also represents a SAMSI workshop on spatial epidemiology forming part of the 2009 - 2010 Program on Space-time Analysis for Environmental Mapping, Epidemiology and Climate Change.
Today, more and more issues are arising in public health involving geography and medicine.
GEOMED brings together statisticians, geographers, epidemiologists, computer scientists, and public health professionals to discuss methods of spatial analysis, as well as present and debate the results of such analyses.
The program will consist of invited speaker sessions covering Clustering and Surveillance, GIS health science, misaligned data, Ecological analysis and infection and Disease Mapping.
A contributed poster session will also be available: details of how to offer a poster are given on the web site.
