One-Day Workshop on Spatial-Temporal Models in Epidemiology and Health

20 June 2014 Lisbon, Portugal 

The One-day Workshop on Spatial-temporal Models in Epidemiology and Health, taking place in Lisbon on June 20th, 2014, is organized by the Centre of Statistics and its Applications of the University of Lisbon (CEAUL), under the ambit of the projects Statistical Methods in Environmental and Epidemiological Processes FCT: PTDC/MAT/118335/2010 and FCT: PEst-OE/MAT/UI0006/2014.

GOALS

The workshop aims to

• bring together researchers who work with epidemiology and health sciences;

• promote a fruitful discussion on the role of statistical methods, such as time series analysis and spatial statistics.

Due to the proliferation of data sets that are both spatially and temporally indexed, spatial-temporal modeling has received an increasing attention in the last few years. Spatial-temporal data are usually related to applied areas, such as epidemiology and health science.

The spatial-temporal data analyses focus, namely, on:

• reading, visualizing, and analyzing spatial data, where observations can be identified with geographical locations;

• generating hypotheses for further ecological or epidemiological study;

• producing a smoothed map, identifying spatial and temporal trends;

• formulating policy decisions related to certain disease over space and time.

The invited speakers will present their methodological advancements with a heavy emphasis on applications. A poster session with contributed papers will complement the scientific program.

7th International Deaf Academics and Researchers Conference
Belgium
02/05/2015

7th International Deaf Academics and Researchers Conference

5, 6 and 7 February 2015 Leuven, Belgium

The idea of the Deaf Academics conferences arose from the Amsterdam Manifesto created by some 35 individuals outside of the TISLR conference on July 26, 2000.

The aim of the Deaf Academics conferences is for Deaf academics and researchers:

to present and share our research findings;

gain a better understanding of the issues that we face in the academic environment;

feel empowered to carry on with our work;

maintain a (support) network.

The Deaf Academics conferences are held in International Sign only to provide direct access to academic discourse instead of through sign language interpreters. 

In 2015, the conference theme will be “Deaf Ethnographies and Politics”.

In Leuven we will  organize:

lectures linked to the conference theme;

workshops focusing on specific issues linked to Deaf academics’ practices, experiences and research methods;

seminars on publishing and applying for grants.

7th Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease
United States
Pennsylvania
11/20/2014

7th Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease

November 20-22, 2014 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The development of the next generation of Alzheimer’s disease treatments is among the most important health needs worldwide, but presents huge challenges. The goal of the meeting is to bring together today’s worldwide leaders in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease to discuss new results, candidate therapeutics, and methodological issues important to the development of the next generation of Alzheimer’s disease treatments.

Clinical trial teams from worldwide centers will report on their efforts to identify new biomarkers of disease as well as more sensitive clinical assessment tools to identify those at risk for AD, predict progression, and assess the effectiveness of new treatments.

The future of clinical trials may lie in the development of combination therapies of two or more drugs. CTAD 2014 will highlight the latest on trying to get these trials off the ground.

Overall, the aim of the conference is to overcome the hurdles and speed the development of effective treatments.

Global Forum on Nicotine
Poland
06/27/2014

Global Forum on Nicotine

June 27-28, 2014 Warsaw, Poland,

We are pleased to invite you to this international conference on nicotine.

Shaping the discussions will be presentations from the world’s leading nicotine researchers and policy analysts.

The science and understanding of nicotine is rapidly changing. The arrival of new nicotine delivery systems, along with other lower risk alternatives to smoking, is forcing rapid changes in nicotine science, public understanding, and the regulatory landscape.

This impacts upon on a wide range of stakeholders including: consumers – who now have a wider range of sources of nicotine; researchers – a new research agenda and new methods for studying the use of nicotine containing products; public health and tobacco control advisors – the role of these products within the landscape of smoking reduction; parliamentarians and policy makers - faced with developing regulatory frameworks; manufacturers and distributors – developing new products or whose business model is challenged by disruptive products; and national and international tobacco control organisations.

The pace of changes and developments in technology and products available has produced a number of different and often contradictory responses from the various actors.

GFN Aims

The Global Forum on Nicotine will:

examine the current state of the debate about the use of nicotine across the globe;

critically examine of the science relating to the safety and use of nicotine;

allow politicians, scientists, manufacturers, distributors and consumers to exchange views;

facilitate the development of links to enable on-going dialogue between different sectors
