International Workshop on Diagnosis of Environmental Health by Remote Sensing Held in Shenzhen
 Date: 2013-10-24  Page Views:

The Third International Workshop on Diagnosis of Environmental Health by Remote Sensing was held on September 28-30, in Shenzhen, China. About 100 domestic and international experts and scholars participated in the workshop and made special reports on environmental health research, remote sensing technology and its application on environmental health diagnosis.

This workshop was sponsored by the Centre for Applications of Spatial Information Technologies in Public Health. Prof. Cao Wuchun and Prof. Cao Chunxiang, both executive directors of the centre chaired the workshop. The workshop had four special topics which were “Research on Spatial Information Technology and Infectious Diseases Forecasts and Warnings”, “Global Environmental Changes and Infectious Diseases”, “Remote Sensing and Environmental Health” and “Environmental Health and Ecological System”,  all focusing on the theme of “Diagnosis of Environmental Health by Remote Sensing”.

The 2011 workshop put forward new thinking for Chinese environmental health science research. In 2012, the workshop established Professional Preparatory Committee and published The Diagnosis of Environmental Health by Remote Sensing monograph series. In 2013, the workshop demonstrated the application results in the Diagnosis of Environmental Health by Remote Sensing and the formation of a young cross-discipline research team.

In 2014, the workshop will keep focusing on discipline construction, talent training and platform construction to realize its goals. On discipline construction, we will further study in theoretical system of disciplines based on the publication of The Diagnosis of Environmental Health by Remote Sensing monograph series in order to promote application level of the research based on national major programs. On talents training, we will build a world-class professional team through joint talent training. On platform construction, we developed software called “Remote Sensing Clinic for the Earth” to provide support for important international organizations like GEO.
