Online workshop at KDD,
August 14-18, 2021
The 5th edition of Fragile Earth will bring together the research community, industry, and policymakers to develop radically new technological foundations for advancing and meeting the Sustainable Development Goals in a way that ensures equitable and inclusive progress.
The last year has given us a glimpse of the devastation global crises can create. However, global mitigation efforts illustrate how lessening consumption, travel, and even work levels are possible and can have positive spill-over effects.
The technological challenges posed by these development goals are twofold: how to achieve accurate, robust, and scalable modeling on physical, environmental, system, and societal data, and how to ensure that the obtained models are socially acceptable in the chosen context.
Call for Papers
We invite both methodological and applied research work within these topics of investigation to be shared at Fragile Earth 2021:
List of topics:
- Innovations in data science and predictive modeling applied to earth sciences.
- Investigations centering equity in regards to sustainability.
- Data-informed climate change and resource management policy discussions.
- Frameworks for helping the scientific and KDD communities to work together.
Any other topics related to the themes of the workshop are welcome.
The methodological agenda of interest include but are not limited to the integration of physics into data-driven modeling and causal inference, the use of machine learning to enhance physical simulations, model interpretability, privacy-aware data sharing, combining predictive and prescriptive tasks, and multi-agent systems for participatory modeling that integrate stakeholders into knowledge creation and decision processes.
All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The submissions must follow the standard ACM Proceedings template.
The following paper categories are welcome:
- Full papers (up to 8 pages in length)
- Position Papers (up to 4 pages in length)
- Policy Notes (up to 2 pages in length)
Priority will be given to work that clearly measures and shows potential for impact in achieving the United Nations SDGs in an open and equitable manner.
Deadline: May 23rd, 2021, 11:59:59PM Anywhere on Earth (AoE).
All questions about submissions should be emailed to
