Australasian Epidemiological Association News

The annual AEA scientific meeting provides a forum for education, collaboration, workshops and presenting research results related to epidemiology and biostatistics. This year’s Annual Scientific Meeting will be held in Fremantle, WA, on October 22-24.

We are now seeking conference convenors for the 2019 AEA Annual Scientific Meeting. In addition to being a great opportunity to make a contribution to the AEA, it is an excellent way to become better known throughout the epidemiological community of Australia and New Zealand. It also provides the opportunity to invite lots of fascinating people to visit you, and most of them will say yes.

Meetings are usually held in September or October, and usually held over 2 days. Some meetings have been held in conjunction with other meetings or events, while others have been stand-alone affairs. Let your imagination be your guide.

If you would like to submit an expression of interest, or are considering doing so and would like to find out more, please contact Sheena Sullivan, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., by 31st May 2018.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 31st May 2018. All submissions received by that day will be considered at the AEA Council.
