Montreal has the honour and privilege of hosting the XVI IEA World Congress of Epidemiology. Formerly known as the International Scientific Meeting of the International Epidemiological Association, the World Congress of Epidemiology is the main event of the IEA. These triennial meetings represent the largest gathering of epidemiologists from around the world and have provided an excellent forum for researchers, teachers, and other practitioners of our discipline to have a frank discussion about the new directions and issues related to the profession. Epidemiologic research and practice are at a crossroads; as it is often said that we are in a period of transition concerning methodological development and substantive focus. What will be our contribution to modern public health practice with the new challenges facing us? The XVI WCE will be the first international meeting of the new century and millennium and will afford a great opportunity for us to define a new vision to orient the profession for the years to come. In addition, the congress will also showcase the results from substantive and methodological research on the traditional disease-based topics and other themes, all with the international flavour that can be expected of the IEA meetings.
