Call for Abstracts: Impact of Environmental Changes on Infectious Diseases

23-25 March 2015, Sitges, Spain

Abstract submission deadline: 3rd October 2014

Environmental changes — the manifestations of which can include loss of biodiversity and habitat, increasing atmospheric temperature, rising sea level, and climatic instability (e.g., longer and more severe periods of drought or rainfall) — are likely to affect the prevalence of various infectious diseases by making conditions more (or less) propitious for the survival of pathogens and their vectors, and by inducing mass movement of human and animal populations.

This conference will discuss the impact of current and predicted future environmental changes on infectious disease dynamics in people, wildlife, and livestock across the globe, and what actions need to be taken.

Major themes for the conference include:

• The effects of climate changes, globalization, urbanization and habitat loss on infectious disease patterns in human and animal populations.

• Socio-demographic and economic factors influencing populations and their impact on the distribution and prevalence of infectious diseases.

• Policies and mechanisms of intervention to prevent or reduce the spread of infectious diseases related to environmental change.

• Future prospects for tackling emerging and neglected diseases.

Join us on March 23 to 25, 2015 in Sitges, Spain to discuss the latest evidence on how environmental changes are impacting the distribution and prevalence of infectious diseases

Call for Papers: 6th International Academic Conference on Environmental and Occupational Medicine

16-18 October 2014 Suzhou, China

Submission deadline: 30 August 2014

Environment and human health are closely related. One recent trend is the integration of environmental and occupational medicine, two of the hottest subjects in public health. Since 2002, the Journal of Environmental and Occupational Medicine (JEOM) and Shanghai Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in alliance with various institutions such as  Environmental Health Perspectives, the California Department of Public Health, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have successfully held five international academic conferences on environmental and occupational medicine which have been well received by both domestic and international experts and peers. A wide spectrum of participants were invited to exchange ideas on themes including “Environment, Ecology, Occupation, and Healthy Cities”, “Environment, Occupation, and Protection of Human Resources in the Rapid Development of Economy”, “Healthy Environment and Harmonious Society”, and “Environment and Health with Emphasis on Environment-related Effects of Climate Change, Urbanization, and Occupation on Public Health”. The proceedings of the third to fifth international conferences (2004, 2006, 2010) are indexed by Conference Proceedings Citation Index—Science, which has effectively boosted the journal’s and the conferences’ international impact.

We are honored to invite you to the 6th International Academic Conference on Environmental and Occupational Medicine to be held in Suzhou, China,  16-18 October 2014. The JEOM 30th Anniversary and the East China Occupational Health Congress will be held in tandem. Participants will share the latest findings in these fields including but not limited to environmental and occupational medicine, environmental protection, meteorology, agriculture, and safety supervision, and will look to future trends with the aim of building a stronger professional collaboration and eventually promoting human health.

Call for Papers: Air Pollution Meteorology and Human Health Symposium

5 January 2015 Phoenix, Arizona.

Abstract Submission Deadline: 1 August 2014

A one-day Symposium on Air Pollution Meteorology and Human Health sponsored by the American Meteorology Society (AMS), and organized by the AMS Committee for Meteorological Aspects of Air Pollution and the AMS Board on Environment and Health will be held 5 January 2015, as part of the 95th AMS Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.  Preliminary programs, registration, hotel, and general information will be posted on the AMS Web site (http://www.ametsoc.org/meet/annual/) in late-September 2014.

The theme for the 2015 AMS Annual Meeting is “Fulfilling the Vision of Weather, Water, and Climate Information for Every Need, Time, and Place”. In our modern society, people, businesses, and governments increasingly depend on weather and climate information to anticipate the quality of the air that we breathe and the consequent heath effects. This information on air pollution and health effects influences decisions that range from the development of local, state, and national policies to an individual decisions regarding outdoor activities or anticipating and preparing for the impacts that these activities will have on one’s health.  Developing the necessary science and technologies to produce this information requires an integrated multi-disciplinary solution that involves a combination of atmospheric science and biomedical science / public health expertise.  The goal of this symposium is to bring together the scientists and researchers required to solve these challenging problems in a forum that encourages the exchange of information across these scientific disciplines. Papers for this symposium are solicited on research describing the development of modeling systems which contain components that address emissions, meteorology, atmospheric dispersion, exposure to contaminants, the corresponding health effects, and the linkage of any/all of these processes in an integrated system.  The symposium also encourages the submission of observational studies on air pollution meteorology and corresponding health effects that can be used to validate these modeling systems.

The submission fee will be $95 per abstract.

There is a recommended 1000-word maximum.

Abstract fees are only refundable if your abstract is rejected for presentation.
