We are happy to invite you to the 2nd Disease Maps Community Meeting held on 2-3 October 2017 at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine in Belval, Luxembourg.

The first day is dedicated to updates on the current activities, introduction of new projects and discussions on selected topics in relation to disease maps generation, maintenance and applications.

The second day starts with a session on mathematical modelling with invited field experts. In the afternoon we have a mini-symposium "Disease maps – a key element of health data integration and visualization" which is a part of the BIGDATA conference.
