In 2005 the International Society for Disease Surveillance was launched.

Mission Statement
The mission of the International Society for Disease Surveillance is to improve population health by advancing the field of disease surveillance. In support of this mission, the Society provides an educational and scientific forum where epidemiologists, informaticists, public health practitioners, health care providers, statisticians, and others can work together to explore and address population health monitoring across institutional and professional boundaries.


We invite all interested professionals to become members of the Society.

We ask for your help in identifying and referencing relevant information and resources. If you have a technical report, dataset, product or any other item that you believe would be of interest to the community, please email the web page url and a one-sentence description of the resource to our webmaster.

On this website you will find summaries of presentations and posters, workshop materials, and proceedings from the national Syndromic Surveillance Conferences since 2002, including webcasts of talks at the more recent conferences. Also available on these pages is up-to-date information on developments in syndromic surveillance, as well as links to other web sites of interest to this community.
