The GEOMED conference is a bi-annual international meeting on spatial epidemiology. The conference focuses both on the developments in methodology and the applications of methods for spatial and spatio-temporal data in public health. The growth in availability of spatially references data of both infectious and non-infectious diseases is increasing the demand for spatial and spatio-temporal analyses. Both GIS technology and spatial statistics are fundamental in the analysis of this data, and the field’s methods are quickly expanding.
The GEOMED conference has been held every other year since 1997, and brings together researchers from different disciplines: statisticians, geographers, epidemiologists, computer scientists and public health professionals.
GEOMED 2024 is organized by the Data Science Institute of Hasselt University. It will take place in Hasselt, a beautiful city in Belgium, from 9 to 11 September 2024.
