Invitation from the Conference Chair

The 29th Annual Scientific Conference of the International Society of Environmental Epidemiology will be held in Sydney, Australia, from 24-28 September 2017.

ISEE17 is co-sponsored by the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research. The venue is the new Law School at The University of Sydney. The University campus is conveniently located to Sydney's central business district and public transport.

The overall theme of the ISEE17 conference is "Healthy places, healthy people – where are the connections?" Implicit in this theme is the recognition that there are many different places (the natural environment, the built environment, the social environment) and many different people (the young, the old, the disadvantaged and the marginalised). The 'connections' may be physical, or they may be psychological, social or political.

We want to challenge existing paradigms and entice and invite participants to ask important questions about environmental justice and the politics of social change and empowerment. Keynote speakers will be tasked with posing these questions to conference participants.

Australia sits firmly in the Asia-Pacific region. Therefore, ISEE17 will specifically address healthy places and healthy people connections in the Asia-Pacific region.

Apart from contributions connected to the main conference theme, ISEE17 also welcomes the increasingly rich and diverse oral and poster presentations, symposia and workshops in both the ‘old’ and ‘new’ environment health – including air and water pollution, contaminated lands, endocrine disrupters, climate change, built environment, food and water security.

On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, I look forward to sharing with you our city and our people. See you all "down under"!!
