Call for Submissions

We are calling for submissions to an IJERPH sponsored poster session concerning Spatial Aspects of Cancer, NCDs and Health Behavior. Prizes will be awarded to the top three posters from junior and senior investigators respectively and judging will be carried out on site by a panel of subject matter experts.


We call for poster submissions addressing Geography, GIScience and Health with an emphasis on diverse approaches to cancer, non-communicable diseases and health related human behavior This poster competition is sponsored by the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health and will include 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes of $500, $300, and $200 for junior (Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Fellows) and Senior (Faculty Appointments). Topics may include but are not limited to geospatial aspects of cancer, NCD’s and health behavior; genomes, exposome, and geography, exposure monitoring utilizing real-time, smartphone-based sensing, GPS/GIS methods, spatial patterns of drug abuse and treatment, mental health and the environment, migration and health, gene-environment interactions, crowd sourcing of geospatial data for health, social media data for health, mHealth and global health service delivery initiatives, health disparities and inequalities, humans, and institutions, neighborhood effects on health behaviors and outcomes, geographies of public health policies, spatial and spatiotemporal analysis and modeling of chronic disease, advances in spatial and space-time statistics for health, mobilities and health, life course and health, health care provision, access, and utilization, health and well-being, methodological issues in health research (e.g., Modifiable Areal Unit Problem, Uncertain Geographic Context Problem), international comparison of health issues, global health research and public health initiatives, geocoding, geoprivacy and sharing of confidential geospatial data.
