21st World Congress of Epidemiology (WCE2017)
Following the 20th WCE in Anchorage in 2014, the 21st International Epidemiological Association (IEA), World Congress of Epidemiology (WCE2017) believes to provide opportunities to exchange information about the development of epidemiology in all the fields and to strengthen the relationship among epidemiologists in the world. The main theme is “Global / Regional / Local Health and Epidemiology in a Changing World”, which is appropriate one for discussing the 3-year development of epidemiology from 2014 through 2017.
This year's Congress welcomed more than 1,000 epidemiologists from about 60 countries as registered participants to the Congress. The 22nd World Congress of Epidemiology will take place in Melbourne in 2020.
