The joint international conference of ISEH 2016, ISEG 2016 and Geoinformatics 2016 provides a historical opportunity for international experts working in several closely related areas of environment, health, geographical information system (GIS) and agriculture, to meet and share the latest understanding of the ever growing challenges between human and our changing environment. As a joint conference, delegates are allowed and encouraged to attend any sessions of the conferences and to extend their academic networks, while the the conferences are organised separately. This novel approach of conference organisation maintains the traditional identities of both conference series while provides a new opportunity of networking for all delegates.
The ISEH (International Symposium on Environment and Health) conference series provides an internationally leading platform for interaction between scientists, consultants, and public servants engaged in the multi-disciplinary areas of environment and health. With the fast economic development, the importance of environment and health is widely recognized in the world, and there is a growing demand for international experts from all over the world to work together on this topic of common interest. This conference provides an opportunity for a direct communication between international experts, and helps to foster and develop international collaborations. The 1st ISEH conference of SESEH (Sino-European Symposium on Environment and Health) 2012 was held at National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway, http://www.nuigalway.ie/seseh2012), and the 2nd conference was upgraded to ISEH 2014 which was held in at Peking University in Beijing (http://oec.pku.edu.cn/iseh/2014). ISEH 2016 is the 3rd conference in this series, which comes back to NUI Galway in order to build a stronger network for international experts working in this area.
The ISEG (International Symposium on Environmental Geochemistry) conference series started in the late 1980s. The initial local symposium on environmental geochemistry was held in Finland. After that, the first truly international ISEG symposium was held in Uppsala, Sweden in 1991. From the beginning a core group of three geochemical scientists provided leadership to these symposia: Prof. Iain Thornton, Ron Fuge and Olle Selinus. It was decided that the ISEG symposia would be held every 3 years resulting in meetings on almost every continent since 1991.
The Geoinformatics conference series was initiated by the International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences (CPGIS) in 1992. This international conference series has provided a unique forum for exchanging novel ideas and cutting-edge knowledge on geographic information sciences and technologies among GIS professionals worldwide. The 24th International Conference on Geoinformatics (Geoinformatics 2016) will be held at National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway), Ireland, together with ISEH 2016, as a joint international conference. The Geoinformatics 2016 conference is organized by CPGIS and NUI Galway.
Galway, located in the west of Ireland, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe and attracts more than 1 million international tourists annually. It is easily accessible, with frequent train connections with Dublin and frequent direct bus connections with Dublin Airport and Shannon Airport.
The conference venue is the campus of National University of Ireland, Galway, within walking distance of Galway’s city centre.
