URISA is now accepting abstract submissions for the 2011 URISA GIS in Public Health Conference. The conference will take place in Atlanta, Georgia, 27-30 June 2011. The conference was established to provide an open and participatory forum for advancing the effective use of spatial information and geographic information system technologies across the domains of public health, health care, and community health preparedness.
The educational program is developed through a review of submissions received through the Call for Presentations. The range of focal areas for the URISA GIS in Public Health Conference is broad, reflecting the varied areas of interest those engaged in both research and practice in public health. The committee welcomes the submission of individual papers, sessions, and posters in any area that meets the general criteria:
- has a spatial component,
- is related to public health, and
- holds interest due to its novelty or information content.
Individuals who submit abstracts are asked to indicate the Thematic Area(s); Methods and Data Sources; and Programs, Policy and Practice Area(s) which apply to their topic.
