In September 2012 we organized a workshop, entitled "Challenges in Modeling the Spatial and Temporal Dimensions of the Ecology of Infectious Diseases", which aimed to link researchers in the fields of disease ecology and geographic information science, and geography. The workshop highlighted issues prevalent in modeling disease dynamics, including scale and uncertainty in spatial and temporal data. The NSF-funded workshop was held on September 18, 2012 in Columbus, OH, preceding the GIScience 2012 conference (http://www.giscience.org).
