Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting a contribution to the Netsci2020 satellite
workshop "Network Science for the Sustainable Development Goals" ( ), that will take place online on
September 20th.

This workshop - co-organized by both humanitarian and academic researchers
- aims at fostering discussions on the role of network science in
addressing the societal challenges framed by the Sustainable Development
Goals. This will be achieved by showcasing relevant theoretical, empirical
and operational work within network science research that can be applied
for the benefit of humanity, focusing on the investigation of network-based
techniques for evidence-based policy-making.

Topics of interest will be (but are not limited to):
- Novel methods for identifying and measuring vulnerabilities (poverty,
lack of information, exposure to conflict, resilience to natural disasters,
epidemic risk, bullying, discrimination, etc.).
- Data availability: novel open data sets and studies on representativeness
and bias, algorithmic privacy, transparency and fairness in the context of
social good applications.
- Replicability and transferability of models in vulnerable and data-poor
contexts; model interpretability in support of better decision making.
- From data to policy making: operationalized research for crafting
sustainable solutions that can be globally scaled.

Please submit your abstract via the EasyChair website: .
Submissions should be at most two pages long and include the following
information: title of the talk, author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail
address(es), abstract and one or two figures. *Abstract submission deadline
is July 10th.*
