E-vigilância 2021

Innovations in surveillance of transmission diseases in pandemic times. Rio de Janeiro, November 3 to 5, 2021.

Welcome to the second edition of E-Vigilance!

E-Vigilance is an interdisciplinary national conference on innovation in transmission disease surveillance. Its first edition, in 2019, was a great success, bringing together initiatives and solutions to modernize the monitoring and control of arboviruses, from participatory monitoring on social networks, to new mosquito traps, data mining, games, mathematical models, modified mosquitoes, etc.

The theme of the 2021 edition will be “Innovations in surveillance of communicable diseases in times of pandemic”. There is no doubt that many innovations were made with the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, from data collection, analysis, modeling, health communication, among others. Epidemiological surveillance has never had to go so fast and in such an integrated way, such community and social engagement for organizing information and promoting action has never been observed. Lots of citizen science. To give light to these initiatives, we are encouraging the participation of projects on these themes:

  • Technological innovations in epidemiological and environmental surveillance
  • Social technologies, participatory and community surveillance
  • Data science for epidemiological surveillance
  • Surveillance of emerging diseases
  • Innovations in epidemiological surveillance in vulnerable populations

Of course, COVID-19 is a central theme, but it is not the only one. Works in all areas and the participation of students, researchers, managers, and civil society are welcome. For each axis, the Scientific Committee will organize conferences and round tables and will also receive contributions from participants, through presentations and video posters. We will have chat rooms and ample opportunities to interact.

The conference will be held in a semi-face-to-face format, looking for creative ways to establish connections even for those who are far away. The opening of the event will be in person with transmission. The other two days (04 and 05) will be in virtual format with transmission of the lectures on Youtube, interaction with the speakers and sending questions through a closed event.
