The International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS) conference is the premier event dedicated to the advancement of the science and practice of biosurveillance. Every year, the ISDS conference draws approximately 400 professionals from a broad range of disciplines to learn the latest achievements, analytic methods, best practices, conceptual frameworks, and technical innovations in the rapidly evolving field of health surveillance.

Additionally, ISDS offers a one-day One Health Symposium prior to the first day of the Annual Conference to explore the intersection of Human, Animal and Environmental Health.

Program Highlights

The three-day conference features approximately 200 presentations of accepted abstracts in posters, orals, lightning orals (5 minute presentations), roundtables and panels. There are workshops included that take an in-depth look into specific topics. Confirmed workshops for 2019 include two courses in R, two courses in ESSENCE and Grant Writing. Workshops may also include opioid surveillance, disaster surveillance and introduction to surveillance.

Attendees may expect to hear from two keynote speakers on topics of global interest, and the very popular Swap Meet gives individuals and organizations the opportunity to share their work with colleagues in an informal and lively setting.
