This workshop series started in 2006. The inaugural meeting was held in Tucson, Arizona, hosted by the University of Arizona. It attracted more than 35 participants from academic institutions, industry, and public health agencies, and achieved its objective of bringing together infectious disease informatics (IDI) researchers and practitioners to discuss selected topics directly relevant to data sharing and analysis for real-time animal and public health surveillance. The 2007 meeting was held in New Brunswick, New Jersey, co-located with the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Intelligence and Security Informatics, and met with tremendous success. Researchers from a wide range of backgrounds including biosecurity, epidemiology, statistics, applied mathematics, information systems, computer science and machine learning/data mining, contributed formal papers to the workshop and actively participated in the meeting along with practitioners from both government agencies and industry. More than 65 people attended the one-day workshop, representing major research labs across multiple disciplines, key industry players, and a range of government entities. The proceedings of the 2007 meeting was published in the prestigious Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
