1st announcement: ISEE Europe's 2nd Early Career Researcher Conference on Environmental Epidemiology

ISEE-Europe welcomes you to the Early Career Researchers Conference on Environmental Epidemiology organized by the Institute for Risk Assessment Sciences, Utrecht University. The conference follows the successful inaugural conference last year in Barcelona. The conference will cover all areas of research in environmental epidemiology. The motto of the conference is ‘Connect to Shape the Future’ and as such we encourage active discussions through formal presentations, workshops, and discussion sessions. The conference will be held in Utrecht, the Netherlands, on the 2nd and 3rd of November 2015. The day before, the 1st of November, we will organize several workshops on diverse topics such as multiple pollutant modelling, land-use regression modelling, and causal inference.

The conference has a particular focus on scientists in the early stages of their careers; including PhD candidates, Postdocs, and Assistant Professors. The focus on early career scientists is threefold: (i) we want to foster a strong cohort of new environmental epidemiology researchers; (ii) we want to ensure that early career scientists get the opportunity to connect and present their work to a larger scientific audience; and (iii) to facilitate attendance of early career scientists, who often have only limited travel funds, at conferences. ISEE-Europe Young 2015 is therefore organized as a low budget conference.

The conference will be led by ISEE-Europe together with help of the local organizing committee at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. An international scientific committee comprised of early career researchers will advise on the scientific aspects of the conference.
