GeoHealth2004: Surveillance & Intervention

What: The aim of GeoHealth2004 is to promote the exchange of ideas and sharing of experiences in the application of Health GeoInformatics to public health research and practice. This conference follows the very successful GeoHealth2002: supporting decision making in health, which focused on supporting decision-making in public health through the application of spatial analytic methods and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

The GeoHealth2004: Surveillance & Intervention Programme is also focused on supporting decision-making in public health with specific focus on the themes

When: Main Conference Sessions run from 23rd-25th November with a wine reception on the evening of the 22nd November, before the start of the paper sessions. The conference dinner will be held on the 23rd November and a conference golf tournament during the afternoon of 25th November, after the close of the main session.

Where: James Cook Grand Chancellor Hotel, Wellington, New Zealand.

Who: the target audience, as was the case for GeoHealth2002, are public health practitioners, academic researchers, GIS and data analysts, decision-makers and their colleagues who provide Health GeoInformatics expertise. We are combining a number of Keynote addresses and Invited papers to set the tone and direction of the conference in which we invite members of the Health GeoInfomatics community and colleagues in the research and academic circles to contribute oral and/or poster presentations.
