6th International Academic Conference on Environmental and Occupational Medicine

6th International Academic Conference on Environmental and Occupational Medicine

16-18 October 2014 Suzhou, China

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.

19th World Congress for Disaster Emergency Medicine
South Africa

19th World Congress for Disaster Emergency Medicine

21-24 April 2015 Cape Town, South Africa

The conference will take place from 21-24 April 2015 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, and will be hosted by the World Association for Disaster and Emergency Medicine in conjunction with EMSSA.

2015 is an important year for WCDEM, as it will be the first time that this key conference is held in Africa. Disasters can strike anywhere, but often cause the greatest devastation when they hit communities that are not prepared to handle the resulting devastation. With this in mind, the theme for the 2015 conference will be Creating Capacity, Building Resilience. We will focus on utilizing prevention and preparedness to minimize the impact of disasters and hasten recovery by developing more disaster resilient communities.

Air Pollution Meteorology and Human Health Symposium
United States

Air Pollution Meteorology and Human Health Symposium

5 January 2015 Phoenix, Arizona.

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 ( 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.

1st International Workshop on Large Scale Population-Based Surveys on Respiratory Health in Italy and Europe

1st International Workshop on Large Scale Population-Based Surveys on Respiratory Health in Italy and Europe

23th-24th October 2014 Polo Didattico Giorgio Zanotto, University of Verona, Verona, Italy

The Unit of Epidemiology and Medical Statistics, University of Verona, in cooperation with the Italian Society of Clinical Epidemiology and Medical Statistics (SISMEC), The Italian Society of Epidemiology (AIE) and The Italian Society of Hospital Pneumologists (AIPO), is organizing the 1st International Workshop on "Large Scale Population-Based Surveys on Respiratory Health in Italy and Europe", which will take place in Verona on 23-24 October 2014.

The Workshop is aimed at presenting the design and the main results from the largest worldwide epidemiological collaborative research projects, undertaken in the last years to investigate respiratory health in children and adults. The European and Italian principal investigators will illustrate their findings on the main determinants of respiratory diseases, disease evolution with time and socio-economic burden. The Workshop will offer a unique opportunity to scientists, pneumologists, allergologists, pediatricians and other health professionals to get an overview of the most advanced ongoing researches in respiratory epidemiology, to debate some crucial topics for the validity of the data and models used, and to discuss how to deal with the future challenges of the research on respiratory health.

eTELEMED 2015, The Seventh International Conference on eHealth, Telemedicine, and Social Medicine

eTELEMED 2015, The Seventh International Conference on eHealth, Telemedicine, and Social Medicine

February 22 - 27, 2015 Lisbon, Portugal

We are facing the generalization of digital society across multiple social areas. The globalization imposes the revision of the health costs a society can support. The progress in difference domains, such as image processing, wireless communications, computer vision, cardiology, and information storage and management assure a virtual team to access online to the latest achievements.

Processing medical data benefits now from advanced techniques for color imaging, visualization of multi-dimensional projections, Internet imaging localization archiving as well as from a higher resolution of medical devices.

Collecting, storing, and handling patient data requires robust processing systems, safe communications and storage, and easy and authenticated online access.

We assist to a unprecedented and rapid deployment of use of electronic imagery, navigation portals, positive attitude on telemedicine, distributed surgery teams, tele-cardiology, and remote medicine. Development of wireless homecare, of special types of communications with patient data, of videoconferencing and telepresence, and the progress in image processing and date protection increased the eHealth applications and services, and extended Internet-based patient coverage areas. Social and economic aspects as well as the integration of classical systems with the telemedicine systems are still challenging issues.

There are several dedicated events on these topics, usually concentrated on local problems (national), or geographical areas (Europe, Americas), as social and governmental rules may differ; eTELEMED 2014 considers advances in techniques, services, and applications dedicated to a global approach of eHealth, including a regard on federated aspects considering the mobility of population, the cross-nations agreements, and the new information technology tools.
