Please consider submitting a contribution to the Netsci2020 satellite workshop "Network Science for the Sustainable Development Goals" (https://sites.google.com/view/netsci4sdgs/
), 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: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=netsci4sdgs
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.
