Spatial epidemiology is a branch of epidemiology and a subject which studies the relationship between disease, health and the spatial environment by using geographic information systems and spatial analysis techniques. With the progress of spatial analysis and geographic information systems, spatial epidemiology plays an increasingly important role in the etiology study. At the same time, the function of geospatial information technology for decision-making in the field of public health becomes increasingly prominent. Public health is an enterprise for all members of society to prevent diseases and improve health. The indicators of public health directly show the living condition of human beings. Their importance is self-evident. Geospatial information technology is widely used in the field of public health through the application and industrial promotion of geospatial information technology in recent years. The significance of public health nowadays is beyond the scope of medical science and has a very important sociological significance.

GIPH 2019 will focus on geospatial information and public health, and invite famous experts and scholars– all over the world to make keynote reports. The primary goal of the conference is to bring together researchers, public health and preventive medicine workers, health policy makers and managers, clinicians, and pharmaceutical companies to a common forum, and also promote information interchange and cooperation between geospatial information and public health. The conference will call for papers from universities, hospitals, disease control centers, pharmaceutical companies, etc. We hope you will contribute to the theme of the conference and participate actively! You will have unexpected harvest! Hope to meet you in beautiful Changsha in December!
