Welcome to EuroEpi 2013
We proudly invite you to the European Congress of Epidemiology (EuroEpi) 2013 of the European Epidemiology Federation of the International Epidemiological Association (IEA-EEF).
The congress will be held in Aarhus, Denmark from 11 August to 14 August 2013.
Please note: Due to a widespread and positive interest (more than 650 abstracts received) we have decided to transfer the European Congress of Epidemiology from the university campus area to Radisson/Scandinavian Congress Center located in the city center of Aarhus.
The dates are unchanged from 11-13 August. Making this move has made it possible to host all accepted talks, posters and symposia. For you as a participant it means easier access to the congress venue and being closer to the old streets and museums in central Aarhus. Note that the pre-congress courses on Sunday 11 August still will be held at Aarhus University. Registration fees remain unchanged.
It is no longer possible to apply for the scholarship for participation in EuroEpi 2013.
The scholarships have been awarded to:
Amal Khanolkar, PhD candidate, Centre for Health Equity Studies (CHESS), Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden
Gabriela Barbaglia, MD, MPH, Health Services Research Unit, IMIM-Institut Hospital del Mar d'Investigacions Mèdiques, Barcelona, Spain
Mait Raag, University of Tartu, Tartu, Estonia
The congress is organised by the Danish Epidemiological Society (DES) under the auspices of the IEA-EEF. We will provide an exciting scientific and educational programme. The NordicEpi 2013 (Nordic Meeting in Epidemiology and Register-based Health Research) will take place just after the EuroEpi 2013 at the same venue, and is open to all interested.
If you want to provide input to the organisers or receive information material as it becomes available, please contact the local organising committee (see below).
Aarhus is Denmark's second-largest city located right in the centre of Denmark on the east side of the peninsula of Jutland. Dating back some 1,300 years to Viking times, Aarhus is the oldest big city in Scandinavia. At the same time, there is an energetic beat of the pulse in this atmospheric and bustling university-city, having a student population of more than 40,000 and with its sights set firmly on the future. Aarhus University, founded in 1928 with its characteristic yellow-brick buildings designed by architect C. F. Møller, belongs to the international elite and has a strong tradition for epidemiological research.
We hope to see you in Aarhus at the EuroEpi 2013!
