GEOMED 2024

Welcome to GEOMED 2024

GEOMED is an international, interdisciplinary conference on spatial statistics, geographical epidemiology and public health. The GEOMED conference is held every 2 years 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.

We hope to see you there!

Conference information

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.

Key topics

  • spatial modeling of infectious diseases
  • geographical modeling of health in low-income countries
  • environmental epidemiology and climate change
